lifts. His total of 440 kg remained an Olympic record from 1976 to 1996.
He was also World and European Champion from 1970 onwards.
When he wasn't training, he was collecting crystal goblets and Armenian cognac, reading Lenin and the translated works of Jack London, and listening to the recordings of Tom Jones. His supreme confidence touched every part of his life. Not only was Alexeev the world's greatest superheavyweight, he also considered himself the finest gardener, cook, carpenter, singer and billiards player in perhaps the entire U.S.S.R.
