Blast from the past …
Ilya Ilyin’s coach, Toishan Bektemirov, uploaded a 200kg Snatch from Blocks by Ilya.
He wrote that this one is from his London 2012 preparation and looks so routine. Remember that in his interview with Dmitry Klokov he said his bodyweight was around 103kg when he did his 196kg Snatch (and 240kg C&J). So I think it’s safe to assume that he had a similar bodyweight when this video was filmed.
Curious what other clips he has in store for us…
Update: 205kg Snatch off Blocks from his 2014 preparation.
