Last month in Iran …
I posted this a month ago on the All Things Gym Facebook Page (‘like’ it and never miss an update), but since then this has been submitted quite a number of times. So I figured I would add that here too.
Bahador Moulaei, who you remember from his big C&Js at the 2013 Universiade, posted a 222kg Power Clean & Jerk.
Bahador is 21 years old (born 21 March 1992) and currently around 138kg.
Also check out Hossein Rezazadeh’s 220kg Power Clean.

rezazadeh made his look like baby weight. I swear he has such a surplus of strength. I feel like he under preformed big time in the olympics. I wish i could have seen him for one more go
I still cant understand why he never showed his true potential…remember his 263 kg Record? Looked like baby weight too
he had health issues since 2004..apparently… i have found an interview of 2004 where he said that he could do much more weight up to 500 total..
i still pissed me off that most people say taranenko is the best lifter..just because he did 3 kg more on stage but rezazadeh basically powercland 263,5 kg…thats insane…i belive he could have done 280 kg
Interresting… very sad he stopped early his carreer… Taranenko is the strongest…not for 3kg ….but for hes 190/235 at + 4O years
Still very young and has such good speed.
