Meanwhile in Kazakhstan …
He weighed in at 107.4kg, so he lifted in the +105kg category (no need to impede preparation for worlds). See the full results below.
How did he do?
This madman got a 185kg Snatch and 239kg Clean & Jerk for a 424kg Total.
You know, just casually lifting 1kg more than the current 105kg C&J World Record and beating his old PR C&J and Total (185 + 233 = 418 at London 2012).
The Best Part? Still 4 months left for him to improve!
- His attempts were 180, 185, x188 and 230, 239kg
- Added a translation of his post competition interview below
