Anatoly Mikhaylovich Khrapaty (also Chrapaty, Template:Lang-ru; 20 October 1962 – 11 August 2008) was a heavyweight weightlifter who competed for the Soviet Union and Kazakhstan. Between 1984 and 1996 he won a gold and a silver Olympic medal, and five world and five European titles. He also set five world records: one in the snatch, three in the clean and jerk and one in the total.[1][2]

Kharpaty retired in 1998 to become a Kazakhstani national coach. He died at age 45, a few days before his flight to the 2008 Summer Olympics, when his motorcycle was hit by an oncoming vehicle.[3]
