Meanwhile in Germany …
This was an important Bundesliga competition for Max Lang!
Not only was it the league’s semi final, but it also counted as the individual qualification for European championships 2017.
Max had to hit a 331kg total in order to secure the his spot on the team.
And that’s what he did, going 6/6 with 145, 150, 154kg in the Snatch, plus 174, 177 and 180kg in the Clean & Jerk (he still had to Power Jerk) for a 334kg total and new personal record in the Snatch (at 77.8kg bodyweight)!
