Russian villages are notable for special women. And here we mean VERY SPECIAL

Hello. Today I would like to tell you about the two Russian women who devoted their lives to sport. The poets wrote the following about them:

Russian villages are notable for special women,

They are gently called “mommies with balls”,

Who can stop a running elephant without screaming,

The first is Natalia Ogryzko, 41 years old, an absolute champion of St. Petersburg in powerlifting and multiple champion of St. Petersburg and winner of Russia in bodybuilding.

Beautiful, strong, purposeful woman.

Tamas Konok Sr. is a Hungarian military correspondent who accompanied the Hungarian army moving towards Stalingrad in 1942. Obviously, he repeatedly got it in the neck from the authorities for his shots, in view of their discrepancies with the spirit of combat propaganda.
