Meanwhile at the Russian National Championships…
David Bedzhanyan(105kg) tied Ilya Ilyin’s 242kg World Record Clean and Jerk, breaking the Russian Record for the 105kg Clean and Jerk in the process.
This is the first time we’ve seen him on the platform since 2014 Worlds where he Clean and Jerked 240kg and I think this might be the heaviest power jerk on film.
If you haven’t seen it yet, David did an interview which was translated back in February where he says he squat jerked 245kg.
