I am in Vladikavkaz for the 2016 Russian Championships, having trouble updating ATG over the hotel wifi.
When: 24th – 29th May
Where: Vladikavkaz, Russia
Timur Naniev had an amazing competition by snatching 192kg and clean and jerking 230kg
21 year-old @nanievtimur (-105kg, Russia) snatching 182kg, 188kg and 192kg/423lb in his hometown of Vladikavkaz where he won the 2016 Russian Championship with 192/230/422. David Bedzhanyan was absent for unknown reasons but presumably this puts Naniev in the running for a spot in Rio — to be decided later. Check out the HG socks from @hookgripstore too! Thanks to Jakub Szafran for the music!
230kg Clean and Jerk
Adam Maligov (94kg) Snatching 181kg then Clean and Jerking 220kg for competition personal bests.
@adammaligov (-94kg, Russia) clean and jerking 220kg/485lb at the 2016 Russian Championships in Vladikavkaz! He also snatched 181kg to total 401kg and improve on his 178/219/397 from the 2015 President's Cup in Grozny. This total puts him in good position to be on the Russian team headed to Rio this summer.
