I knew Dave from Atlas Gym in Alfreton, where i trained and competed as a powerlifter. Dave was a great chap, always on hand for advice and help..

Looks like Dave's Silver medal at the 1970 Commonwealth Games is being confused with an Olympic medal. My old coach, Alan Fairclough, lifted around the same time as Dave and had lots of tales to tell.

David Hancock didn't win silver medal at the 1972 Olympics. He took 13th place with 510 KG total (177.5+142.5+190). Great lifting but no silver.

Dave was my stepdad,he got a silver medal at the Munich Olympics in 1972, think my mum still has it somewhere. He dedicated his life to weightlifting and powerlifting. Such a shame there are not more comments
