Here is 19 year old super heavyweight Darius Jokarzadeh from Cardiff breaking the
Welsh GB u20 and u23 Clean & Jerk record with 190kg .
Acording to Stuart, who shared this with me, he is
145kg and used to be a rower but had to switch to OL after sinking his boat! Narrowly missed out on London 2012 selection
It was announced that it was u20 and u23 record, but think it is a senior Welsh record too, as previous best was 145kg by Terry Purdue (who i think was coaching someone at the competition). the jerk of 190kg matches Welsh record (also set by Terry Purdue), but is a new u20 and u23 record. I imagine it’s a new total record too. I think it was 8 records in all!
First the 160kg Snatch
190kg Clean & Jerk
Thanks to Stuart for sharing.
