The Athlete That Sparked My Interest In Kettlebells

Anatoly Kharpati was amazing in the 1988 Olympic Games. His televised athlete profile sparked an interest in kettlebells and it wasn't until the better part of 20 years later that I finally owned one myself.

I didn't realize that he had passed. He's one athlete I'll never forget.



I believe this video was uploaded by liftup, a great Olympic Weightlifting website. Thank you to them for making it available for public viewing.
