Here is a video of Asen Zlatev, 1980 Moscow Olympics Gold medalist in the 75kg.
He later competed in the 82.5 kg.
- 183kg Snatch @82.5kg 1986 in Melbourne
- 225kg (WR) Clean & [email protected] 1986 World Championshipe in Sofia
The following clip is from the 1988 Bulgarian Weightlifting Training Hall.
230kg Clean & Jerk
Update: In the Stefan Botev Clean post reader Matt commented that:
Also he [Abadjiev] said that the weight is incorrect on the video just posted of Asan Zlatev, he said he never did more than 225 during training at that time in Japan in 88. He wanted to but Abadjiev told him it was unnecessary.
And on second look it does look like 3 reds +blus plus a 5kg plate on each side = 220kg.
But still, 220kg at that bodyweight is simply unheard of.
