Here is the second World Record Breaking Clean & Jerk from the 105kg Session at the 2014 World Championships.
David Bedzhanyan‘s 240kg, taking back his Clean & Jerk World Record from Ruslan Nurudinov, who took it from him only a minute prior to this lift. Unfortunately for David this record also didn’t last long as Ilya Ilyin crashed the party with his 242 kg Clean & Jerk.
David definitely had the meet of his life in Almaty. Lots of people were doubting his abilities to deliver a medal performance on international stage.
I can’t fathom the mental toughness it must take to open at 225kg, miss his second attempt at 236kg and come back and make a world record weight.
Update: Read David’s Interview on ATG.
