Aleksey Lovchev’s 257kg Gold Medal Clean & Jerk.
Yes he had a bad day in the Snatch (his 195kg Snatch in the warm up area had us hoping for a good session), but this 257kg in my opinion made up for it in my book.
257kg is even 1kg heavier than what he did in the Russian Championships (212 + 256).
- he became the third Russian lifter to win Clean and Jerk in men’s +105kg, after Evgeny Chigishev (RUS, 2007) and Chemerkin (1998, 1999)
- this C&J is the heaviest weight at World Championships since Hossein Rezazadeh’s 263 kg in 2002
