I am a little confused. If anyone knows the answers please reply. MP shows a WR snatch of 158 in Seoul on 12/5/88. Above it is a total for 12/5/87, also in Seoul. Could this be a mix up, with the snatch record being in 87? Was this the test event for the Seoul Olympics? I knew that MP had knee problems and was not surprised to see another lifter replacing him at 88 Olympics. Angel Gunchev was a surprise, though. He had to cut enormous amount of weight for a man his size. AG put in an awesome performance but was DQ'd.

Doesn't this post refer to Mikhail Petrov?

Yes, the MP in the photo above is definitely the same one who set up a WR C&J, but I thought the blond guy with the mustache in the photo predated Yanko Rusev, who did so well in the '78 World's, which I attended in Gettysburg. So maybe Mssrs Frydkjaer and Berg are talking about two different guys?? The Petrov I'm thinking about (in photo) had a meteoric rise, and lasted only a year or two at most. Injuries took their toll.

Is this the same lifter as: http://www.chidlovski.net/liftup/l_athleteResult.asp?a_id=648? The names are exactly the same, except these are different transcriptions. Also it's the same weightclass and so on ...
