EDITORS COMMENTS
In this iconic photo print, we witness the Soviet Union's Aleksandr Karelin on his path to victory during the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Competing in the Men's Super-Heavyweight (130kg) Greco-Roman Final, Karelin exhibits sheer strength and determination as he grapples with Bulgaria's Rangel Gerovski at the Sangmu Gymnasium in Seongnam, South Korea. This moment captures Karelin in his prime, showcasing why he is revered as one of the greatest Greco-Roman wrestlers of all time. Dressed in red, representing his country, Karelin dominates the match with unwavering intensity and skill. The photograph freezes a split second where both athletes are locked in an intense struggle for control. For Karelin, this gold medal marked only the beginning of an extraordinary journey that would see him claim three consecutive Olympic victories. His relentless pursuit of excellence and unmatched technique have solidified his status as a legend within wrestling circles worldwide. The image itself is a testament to Colorsport photographer Stewart Fraser's ability to capture raw emotion and physical prowess through his lens. This particular shot encapsulates not only a historic sporting achievement but also serves as a reminder of human resilience and dedication. As we gaze upon this remarkable print today, we are reminded of Aleksandr Karelin's indomitable spirit and unparalleled dominance within the realm of Greco-Roman wrestling.
