1996. Is that even considered a “classic”? Anyway, Andrei Chemerkin (1996 Olympic Weightlifting Champion) was a massive Russian weightlifter that I had a major crush on. The photo above is quite possibly a popular and an iconic image, especially to his fans.
I’m not really sure what he’s doing now, so any info would be appreciated. And here are just some photos that I have collected or was shared with me from the past
[EDIT: I just learned that these photos came from the Andrei Chemerkin Unofficial Website. Visit it now as it has tons of photos of the spectacular Andrei Chemerkin.]
The following collage was from FilmBear’s Andrei Chemerkin’s Fan Page. As an added note, FilmBear also had fansites for John Goodman and Abraham Benrubi (but I can’t seem to access them, and if I could, I could not access the contents).
