Karelin in 1999

Recommended Posts

I had heard there was a controversial match that Karelin won at the 1999 World Championships in Greece.  Perhaps it was the semi final against Mureiko of Bulgaria in the semis which is listed as a 2-0 overtime win for Karelin on the UWW database.  The story was to the effect hat Mureiko got his arm raised but then they reviewed the tape and gave the match to Karelin.  Can anyone confirm this?
