aleksandr karelin


Rulon Gardner- a dairy farmer from Wyoming, was the surprise Aleksandr Karelin, the “greatest wrestler of all time”, was not expecting.


Happy 76th Birthday to Viktor Kuznetsov, one of the most successful wrestling coaches ever. The man who pushed Aleksandr Karelin to keep going when he was having doubts about sticking with wrestling. Currently coach and mentor of 2 x Olympic Champion Roman Vlasov, he started wresting in 1957 and it’s estimated that he’s coached over 10,000 wrestlers since starting his coaching career in 1962.
