Aleksandr Karelin
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Do you have a hero? Can you think of someone who you want to be like? Maybe it's a favorite person on television or in the movies. Maybe it's a friend or someone in your family. When he was a boy, Aleksandr Karelin had heroes.
 
2     Aleksandr's heroes were men called bogatyr. These men were a part of Russian history. They were giant soldiers. They fought against Russia's enemies. Everything about these men was big. Even their horses were huge! Aleksandr wanted to grow up just like one of these men. And he did.
 
3     Aleksandr was born in a city called Novosibirsk in Russia in 1967. He was a big baby who became a big boy. When he was young, he liked to run in the woods. There are many forests around Novosibirsk. Aleksandr had lots of places to run. It's very cold and snowy in Novosibirsk in the winter, but that didn't keep Aleksandr from running. Aleksandr once said: "Then you are wet with sweat and snow and very tired. You come home, crawl into bed and sleep soundly."
