This is where you were supposed to watch a bunch of training hall stuff I filmed, like Oleg Chen’s and Artem Okulov’s entire session. Unfortunately Sergei Syrtsov, the president of Russian weightlifting, isn’t a fan of training hall videos. He asked us not to film the training hall.
Hope to get some good stuff from the competition though.
