Yuri Zakharevich

I’m going to give you some of Yuri’s own words. A few years after he retired, he did an interview with World Weightlifting magazine. They asked him about his 1983 injury, and how it affected him mentally. Here’s what he said:

“First I thought, ‘Hell, that’s the end of the world.’ Today, in retrospect, I can see it was one of the major turning points in my career. It made me realize that there is a time in every one’s life when you must clench your teeth together and your fate only depends on your determination. Finally, I overcame the injury, because I wanted to lift again so much. And later on I achieved even better results than before. It was a great thing.” - Yuri Zakharevich
