December 5, 2010

Dmitry Medvedev sent his congratulations to six-time European champion, five-time world champion, and Olympic weight-lifting champion (1960) Yury Vlasov on his 75th birthday.

The telegram reads, in part:

“You are known in Russia and abroad as an outstanding athlete who has left a bright trace on the history of weight-lifting. As an Olympic champion and many-time international champion, you have set dozens of world records and promoted the development of high sports achievements in our nation.

You also deserve recognition as a public figure. Your multifaceted talent has helped you to reach creative success as well, including in literature.”
