“Today we honor the memory and honor of not only a great athlete, but also a person, I am not afraid of this word, of the era of Viktor Grigorievich Kurentsov. The person who actually made a revolution in weightlifting. In addition to Olympic medals, of course, a large number of athletes were brought up on his example and are still being brought up. He put his soul, all his knowledge and skills to ensure that the sports organization not only exists, but also develops. First of all, I want to say a big thank you to all the participants in this event. Over time, you start to realize that sometimes you need to do certain things in a timely manner. More recently, we talked with Viktor Grigorievich and just like that, we suddenly lost the legend. I hope that with this small commemorative plaque we will lay the traditions of honoring all our athletes and this event will help in educating high-class athletes, ”said Artem Gromov.
