This Moldovan won two gold medals at Seoul as a Soviet. After the collapse of the USSR in 1991, he crossed the border into Romania and won two fourth places at Barcelona. After the Olympics he moved back to now independent Moldova. In 1994 he convinced his partner of 1988, Viktor Reneisky of Belarus to join him in Kishinev and together they represented Moldova at Atlanta. The spelling of his name in 1988 is an oddity of course, since Moldovan (which is actually a form of Romanian) is normally written in the Latin script. The soviet authorities transposed his name into cyrillic and the western media transposed this back into Latin, but using English-Russian transposition rules.
