I saw a nice article in Powerlifting USA on Ken Patera who is probably best known as a professional wrestler but was also a gold medal olympic weightlifter. An incredible athlete who demonstrates the athletic ability, speed and strength of O lifters. He could press over 500 lbs and was the only wrestler who could body slam Andre the Giant!

Patera's feats awere nothing short of incredible...if he had received the state backing and prestige that Alexieve (sp?) history would be quite different.
