He had been working towards this victory all his previous life. It was hard to imagine that Yuri Vlasov, the idol of millions, would one day lose his advantage and step down from the podium. But Leonid did not count on the opponent's weakness - only on his own strength and the tactical cunning inherent in every Ukrainian. And finally the moment came when he was able to use his main weapon. The duel between Zhabotynsky and Vlasov at the Tokyo Olympics in 1964 is still remembered by the entire sports world
