Monument to Valery Kharlamov unveiled on Luzhniki’s Glory Alley

The legendary ice hockey player’s gear is displayed inside a nearby pavilion.

A monument to legendary Soviet ice hockey player Valery Kharlamov by People’s Artist of Russia sculptor Alexander Rukavishnikov and architect Sergei Sharov was unveiled on Glory Allery at Luzhniki Olympic Complex.

A pavilion, built near the monument, displays his gear, including a hockey stick, skates, an honourary certificate/citation, glove cuffs and a medal from the first 1981 Valery Kharlamov memorial tournament.

Sculptures of other athletes can also be seen at the Luzhniki Olympic Complex. In 1996, a monument to RSFSR and USSR champion Nikolai Starostin, the founder of the Spartak Football Club, was unveiled. On 2 May 1998, a monument to football player and Olympic champion Eduard Streltsov also appeared at Luzhniki. In 1997 and 2005, monuments to football player Lev Yashin and Anna Sinilkina, Honourary Chairperson of the Presidium of the USSR Figure Skating Federation, were also unveiled.

Glory Alley also features the bronze statue of a bear, the mascot of the 22nd Olympic Summer Games in 1980.

Valery Kharlamov played for the CSKA Ice Hockey Club from 1967 to 1981. As a member of the Soviet national ice hockey team, he also won the 1972 and 1976 Olympic Winter Games and became an eight-time world champion. He was killed in a traffic accident in 1981
