Why?

Watching and learning from Parfenovitch at the Worlds in 1981 was inspirational to me as a kid. The fastest starter I have ever seen and together with Superata in K2 would be so far ahead after 100m they had time to relax and enjoy the scenery. He would doubtless have added to his medal tally had the USSR attended the 1984 Games. The only paddler to win three golds at one Games! His medal table shows he just very rarely got beaten!!
