The world’s strongest man died. World sport legend.


Vasily Alekseyev, the Soviet super heavyweight lifter who won 2 Olympic gold medals and set 80 world records, died November 25, 2011 (aged 69) at a heart clinic in Badenhausen, Germany.

He was unbeaten from 1970 to 1978, winning Olympic gold at the 1972 Munich Games and the 1976 Montreal Games along with eight consecutive world championships.

In 1970, Alekseyev became the first man to lift 500 pounds and to total more than 600 kilograms (1,323 pounds) in what was then the three standard lifts, since reduced to two.

Alekseyev, 6 feet 1 inch and 350 pounds or so in his prime, with massive legs and chest and bulging arm muscles, dominated weight liftering sport.

Alekseyev began practicing weightlifting at age 18. Alekseyev was trained at Trud Voluntary Sports Society by his coach Rudolf Plyukfelder until 1968, when he began to train there solo.

Alekseyev attributed his dominance to training more often and more intensely than his rivals. He said he followed his own regimen without a coach, overcoming leg, back and stomach injuries.

He maintained that he was undaunted by mental barriers in lifting enormous amounts of weight.
