Remember the video of the then 14 year old Khetag Khugaev (174kg Clean from Blocks)?
In July he lifted in the 2013 Summer Spartakiad in Russia.
He won the 85kg (lifting at 81.3kg bodyweight) with a 150kg Snatch and 169kg Clean & Jerk.
… 150 at 15, 160 at 16, …
Update 06.09: Khetag won Gold in the U17 Europeans 85kg. 150+176.
