No one cares about Liv92, except maybe Liv92.

Great photos. Chigishev looks pretty jacked. My all time favorites are Rigert and Pisarenko.

Who remembers the '08 Olympics… just after Steiner hit his last c&j for gold it cut to Chigishev in the back, he sorta shrugged his shoulder, but he was looking JACKED.
