Actually his total of 485 at Munich exceeded Kurentsov's world record of 482.5 from 1968.

Seems that Bikov was born in 1952, and thus was 20 when won the gold medal at the Olympics in Munchen - http://www.sports-reference.com/olympics/athletes/bi/yordan-bikov-1.html - He partecipated at the WC in 1970 and 1971, placing fifth in both, and earned a gold medal in the clean & jerk, his strongest lift, in 1971. Very strong athlete, he deserves a post, nevertheless he did 2.5kg less than Kurentsov 4 yrs before....
