    What do you mean? You can google it? The guy is a world champ in sambo, an olympic silver medalist in greco, and a multiple world medalist in freestyle. Is that what you mean.

    I cant really find much info apparently Sambo didnt had world championships until after the soviet union collapsed, but apparently FILA ran some but i cant find much records.

    It might be because it was strictly Eastern Bloc thing :)
    The first world championship was held in Iran, 1973, followed by tournaments in USSR, Canada, France, Italy, Spain and USA.
    It was in 1985 when FIAS was formed though. So any information from before that would be difficult to find... or classified by KGB :)
