Ymer Pampuri had been second in the press at the 1972 European Championships in the 60 kg. class, but it was still a surprise when he led the competition in the press at the 1972 Olympic Games. In his native Albania, only the press was practiced, and Pampuri had no significant experience with the snatch or clean & jerk and fell back to ninth place in München. David Wallechinsky was later able to track him down and interview him in his native Albania, where he worked as a circus clown.
