    The father & son ‘team’ of the Lopatin’s! The younger Lopatin, Sergei, snatched a worlds record of 294, ( 133kg), while using the split style. This was in 1965 and he was weighing within the lightweight class limit, 67 kg.
    Tommy Kono wrote a great article, which appeared in an old Strength & Health, entitled, “In His Father’s Footsteps”, about Sergei’s wonderful lifting.
    Sergei looked like a young boy rather than a world record holding weightlifter!
