The Summer Olympic Games started in Moscow 40 years ago

Exactly 40 years ago, the opening of the XXII Summer Olympic Games, the first games in Eastern Europe, took place in the capital of the USSR. The games were opened on July 19, 1980 by the General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee Leonid Brezhnev. The games featured 203 sets of awards in 21 sports.


The right to light the Olympic flame was given to the outstanding Soviet basketball player, Olympic champion in 1972, two-time world champion Sergei Belov.

The main symbol and mascot of the 80 Moscow Olympics was the Olympic Bear. It was created by the remarkable Soviet artist Viktor Chizhikov. Not everyone knows, but there was another mascot at the 1980 Olympics. It was used in sailing competitions in Tallinn, a city that actually became Olympic 40 years ago. The mascot there was the Vigri seal. It is noteworthy that this was the first time in storieswhen a particular sport at the Olympics had its own mascot. The author of the seal, as a symbol of the yachtsmen's competition, was the artist Saima Symer, and the author of the name was one of the schoolchildren of the Estonian SSR.

Western countries are known to have found a reason to boycott the Olympic Games in Moscow. The formal reason was the entry of Soviet troops into Afghanistan in 1979. However, despite the boycott by the national Olympic committees of Western countries, many athletes from Western Europe took part in the 1980 Olympic Games, performing under the Olympic flags. Several examples: athletes from Denmark, France, Portugal, Italy, Great Britain, Switzerland, the Netherlands. It is noteworthy that, speaking by no means in full force, the Italian team was able to take 5th place at the Moscow Olympics, having won a total of 15 medals of various denominations. The USSR national team became the absolute leader of the medal standings, in the piggy bank of which there are 195 medals. The second and third places are taken by the teams of the GDR and Bulgaria.

The legacy of the Olympics is not only a memory of its holding, but also many objects that are actively used to this day: sports palaces, stadiums, cycle tracks, a rowing canal, television centers, large hotels and hotel complexes.

OI-1980 was closed on August 3, 1980.

                You know, in the same way it can be stated that the swastika is ancient Nazism and was a symbol of light and good in India and elsewhere. But only since the Nazis appropriated it, the meaning of this symbol is very unambiguous and not interpretable. As well, the rainbow, since it was appropriated by perverts, has become a symbol of perversions.

                  I think that a rainbow, "as a symbol of perversion," can only appear in a perverted head .. A rainbow remains a rainbow despite sick fantasies .. what if perverts choose the sun as their symbol .. that children cannot draw the sun either? What nonsense.

                  You're talking about garbage, as in the case of the swastika, so about the rainbow. Adequate and intelligent people know that the swastika, as you yourself CORRECTLY wrote, is one of the oldest religious symbols in India and Buddhism in general. And the rainbow is a symbol of Good luck!

      I managed then, in Luzhniki, by chance to get autographs from Belov and Saneev (jumping and running), but I lost it somewhere.

    Yes, and the loss was strange, as well as with Czechoslovakia in 1/4 EURO-76. A sensation was brewing when a team from socialist Germany could become the winner of a major international tournament.
    Before that, having a very strong team, the GDR appeared only once at the World Cup, in 1974, where they managed to beat the FRG MOST national team. And, now, there was a chance, with the help of the "big brother" to get the star ... It did not grow together. In the final of the OI-80 in Luzhniki, the Germans lost to the Yugoslavs 0: 2.

    How many romantics, it turns out, live here! I personally participated in the opening and closing ceremonies of the games. The Opening was more memorable. More extensive preparation, more emotion. Recall, for example, the performances of young gymnasts, the famous living "flower beds" to the music of Doga and Rachmaninoff! Suite "Friendship of Peoples". Where, in what country of the world was such a charming diversity of cultures preserved? I took part in Russian dance. I remember the dancers from Belarus, Ukraine (they did not feel the difference in mentality and training at all), warm memories from communicating with dancers from Tajikistan and Uzbeks ... and unpleasant memories of the cold contemptuous participation of the Balts and Georgians (not all, really!).
    They were preparing for the Closing already during the competition. I remember sitting with the guys in the Luzhniki stands very close to the Olympic flame in the nightly "hassle" of rehearsals. Someone asked to light a light - for some reason no one found it. I didn’t see it myself, but the person who asked went up to the Chalice of Fire and somehow lit a cigarette: he returned with a light of a cigarette! All smokers immediately began to light a cigarette only at his place!
    Not for romantics. "Olympiad" - in the Middle Ages, the method of summer reckoning for four years (for leap years). The "Olympic Games" of antiquity were founded by Christ himself in honor of his "father" Joseph Comnenus - the "god of war", protector. They were held during all four years in different places (and not only sports), Christ himself also participated in the first games and distinguished himself as an athlete and a skilled archer. The tradition of the torch relay of the Olympic flame was first proposed at the 1936 games in Berlin by Goebbels ... Since then it has not been revised, and the "swastika" is prohibited. Then ...

        Boxers growth 179 Zaev-201 Stevenson. Zaev’s weight is 85 kg, Stevenson’s weight is about 100. At present, Peter Zaev should be light heavyweight, and the Cuban in heavyweight, I can’t say the category numbers. The first 2 rounds were won by Zaev. At the end of the rounds, Peter Zaev wanted to shake hands, the Cuban looked at this contemptuously. The fact that Stevenson is a nasty type, it became clear to everyone finally when he hit his head with an airport employee, a boxer .... his head ???? What is this boxer when he takes on a galangal. He knocked out his teeth, was arrested.

            But in vain. But I'm not talking about gymnastics at home, but about real gymnastics, although something can be modeled at home as well. I once asked my father - what is the coolest sport for war? He answered - boxing and gymnastics. He has been doing this and that since childhood. Then - the Marine Corps of the Black Sea Fleet, then - the assault regiment in Budapest, and then to the demobilization in intelligence. I only appreciated gymnastics at school - exercises on the apparatus - this is really cool! I don’t remember the number of the exercise, when on the crossbar you swing back, turn around, and then do another coup. Now scary to imagine laughing But as a fact - in space you feel yourself "your own person"! There was also such a thing - you run, the bridge, you push, you need to make a number of different figures and get on your feet. After the army, already, I go with the guests with my wife and breastfeeding daughter in my arms. The tram rails are smeared with something slippery. He stepped, began to fall, but - a controlled somersault, black marks on the shirt, and the daughter did not even wake up. Gymnastics rules! laughing drinks
            And yes, instead of boxing - a melee. Well, just in the 30s she was not. And so the father was 100% right. Gymnastics must be done! About 30 years old.

    I lived in Moscow on Tsvetnoy Boulevard and the Olympic Stadium was a five-minute walk from the house, the city was literally swept away before the start, there were almost nobody on the streets.
    But most of all I remember not the Games, but the funeral of Vladimir Vysotsky. It seemed that everyone who had stayed in Moscow gathered on Taganka, there was nowhere for the apple to fall, either in the square or in the alleys. Before the Olympics, many operational units were created to maintain order, mainly from students, they even gave out special uniforms and the people sat at strong points. Many were sent to the Taganka for the funeral. I was no longer a student, but I went there to my friend from Baumanka and, willy-nilly, I had to put myself in a chain. The nightmare was complete, people almost climbed each other’s heads to break through to the theater, since the time of Stalin’s funeral I don’t remember this. Well, we got drunk, respectively, after Baumantsev was replaced by others.
    My friend later composed the following rhymes about the Olympics:

    "And in nature, flowering, as luck would have it,
    Poplar fluff - even a dime a dozen,
    That there is fluff, then the police crawled
    Don't go outside ... "

    The games, of course, are interesting to watch on TV, but being in the city where they are held is somehow not very good.

    By the way, I just read your post and remembered my childhood. They lived then in the Poltava region. Around 66-67, my father was on exercises in winter. There were dust storms at that time. The temperature is somewhere around 30. When the father returned from the exercises, his face was brown (weathered) and only wrinkles were light.
