POWER - Russian Medal Mystery


This recent purchase is a Soviet CCCP period Russian bronze medal dating to the 1960's ?? I have named this as POWER - both for the strength of design and pure speed of the subjects. As a piece of design it is striking -- simple and easy to understand -- every last gram of effort used -- a must win medal.


However, as you would expect, it is not signed. All work for Mother Russia, no individual personal glory allowed and to me it leaves it a bit souless almost lacking history. I wonder whether any reader can fill in the history. Do you know who designed this ??
