Cheetah the chimpanzee has died. Cheetah was Tarzan’s faithful companion in several of those great Tarzan movies from the 1930s. Some estimate that Cheetah was about 80 years old, which is almost twice the typical lifespan for chimps.
Many of us, hopefully a lot of us, remember when Vasily Alekseyev won gold in the 72 and 76 Olympics and became the first man to lift over 600 KG in the triple. Alekseyev was a quiet man who set an example of personal drive and determination that we can all follow. Even if we are not trying to lift 600 KG we should know that we can accomlish what we set our minds to, just as Alekseyev did.
