BACKGROUND: The Uzbekistani, Azerbaijani, and Kazakhstani successes in Sydney come as little surprise given that their athletes excelled in boxing and wrestling during Soviet times while the republics in the Caucasus traditionally produced top weightlifters and wrestlers. Recall, for example, the victories in the 1970s of the boxers Serik Konokbaev and Rufat Riskiev.
