Serge Lopatin was a sensational lightweight in an era filled with great lightweight lifters.
He was boyish in appearance and did not look like a top weightlifter, yet held world records in both Press and Snatch lifts and total. He came very close to holding the world record clean & jerk on a few occasions.
As late as 1965 he set a world record snatch of 295lbs using the split technique. An amazing athlete!
