Here is a tribute to one of the greatest snatchers of our time – Andrei Rybakou. See Andrei’s competition history on IWRP. Thanks to BP for submitting.
This was the best snatch at the 2013 Worlds 85kg. Andrei Rybakou went 175, x179, 179 and x194, 194, 200 for a 373kg Total (6th). Overall I’d say that the 85kg was the most interesting category yet.
