A visit to the Valery Kharlamov memorial in Moscow

On January 14 2018, legendary Soviet ice hockey player and two-time Olympic champion Valery Kharlamov would have turned 70 years of age.

In his memory, former teammates, friends and supporters visited his memorial in Moscow.

Two-time Olympic champion Boris Mikhailov:

- Valery Kharlamov was a good friend to me. We played together for thirteen years, that really does say something. He is remembered by millions of ice hockey fans, but he was also a great person with a brilliant sense of humour. Valery was loved everywhere. Vladimir Petrov and I first saw Valery in 1967, when he was called up to the junior team for the summer training camp. It was really difficult in the first few years following Valery's passing, because we were great friends.
