K'akhi K'akhiashvili

B. 1969-07-13, Tiflida, Georgia, then part of the Soviet Union
represented Georgia (via the Unified Team) in 1992, Greece after 1996
Weightlifting (3 gold)

Men's Heavyweight I (-99 kg) gold
Men's Middle−Heavyweight (-94 kg) gold dnf
57600.03

After winning his second gold medal, he said : 'The first of my golds I won for Georgia, where I was born and lived for 23 years, But I also wanted to win one for Greece, the country I love and where I and my parents now live.'
He won his third gold medal in Sydney but failed in his quest for four in Athina.
There are two, or even three official spellings of his name, in the Georgian, Greek and Cyrillic alphabets. Since he is ethnically Georgian, I opt for the official Georgian transliteration to write his name in Latin script.
