Yes, he has reverted to his true birth name after re-locating to Germany. I had a letter from Rudy a few years ago and he used 'Pflugfelder'.

For that matter, shouldn't it be Pflugfelder rather than any other spelling? Pflug is German for plow.

Has he gone back to the spelling 'Plugfelder' now that he is in Germany? For that matter, David Adamovich's last name should really be written as Riegert in the Roman alphabet since this is how it's spelled in the original German.

I have just read the k kangasniemi and r plukfelder interviews prompting this reply, I lifted in world championships and 3 Olympics from 1962 to 1975 at 75kios 120 press 120 snatch 152.5 c/j at 82.5 145 130 170 in the above dates. I never used steroids or any other drugs I am happy in the knowledge I was a clean olympic weightlifter and the result I achieved can others who were not clean fill the same. Regards mike Pearman

he was a real class act winning the 64 olympics beating two men much younger than himself. i especially liked it in 1961 when he beat kono the steroid pioneer and guru

' No medications involved '. Highly unbelievable.

Yes, the last name can be transcribed in different ways. Please note that it was Aslambek Yenaldiev who did the 460 kilos in squat. That's what it says in the interview with G. Bessonov.

Dont should be spelled 'Plyukfelder' ? - Since i read here - - that he did a back squat of 460kg in 1976, i think that he deserves at least one post.
