The 2003 World Champion was Qatari Asaad Said Saif, the 2000 Olympic bronze medalist and formerly Angel Popov in his native Bulgaria. He lifted 192.5 kg in the snatch, tied with Moldovan Alexandru Bratan, but trailing Russian Dmitry Berestov, who lifted 195.0 kg. Said Saif bombed out on all three lifts in the clean & jerk and was eliminated. Berestov lifted 230.0 kg in the clean & jerk to win the gold medal. His final lift was matched by Ukrainian Ihor Razoronov, who came in for the silver medal, after having placed fourth in the class at Sydney. Bronze went to Russian Gleb Pisarevsky, who had never won a medal before at a major international.
