WORLD WEIGHTLIFTING - ISSUE: 1998/3




DIMAS - HUSTER 3 : 2

Dimas Huster

For the last five years, the highlight session of any Olympic Games, World or European Championships has been the one which features a duel between Greek DIMAS Pyrros and German HUSTER Marc.
Any competition is hiked by their recurring battle for supremacy. We saw exhilarating contests in Melbourne, Guangzhou, Atlanta and Riesa.
In this private duel between two true friends, Dimas currently leads 3 to 2, as per the following scores:
(We must note here that in our interview with Dimas in World Weightlifting's 1998/2 issue, on page 41 we incorrectly subtitled the photo which of course shows Pyrros with his friend - and rival - Huster. We apologize for this mistake the Editors.)

Dimas, Huster, or eventually last year's world champion Cofalik (POL), or rather Sevinc (TUR), who preceded Dimas in Riesa???

There are many question marks, but one thing is sure: the 85kg will be the highlight event, the rendezvous of big stars, at the World Championships in 1998.
