3 Rocket Sports Festival In The USSR

Rocket Sports Festival In The USSR

Posted on December 23, 2011 by

From 1956 till 1991, in the Soviet Union once every four years they held the Sports Festival of the Peoples of the USSR.

Looking at these photographs taken by American journalist Stan Wayman in 1963, you understand that although rockets have nothing to do with sports, that year thay became the highlight of the show! Apparently, Soviet people were so inspired by their successes in space exploration, that they couldn’t but remind to the world about it each time it was possible.

Ready! Steady!
