Slow Motion with Bar Path Thanks to Markus.
Either Bedjanyan or Bedzhanyan is acceptable. Specifically the character ж is more like a zh sound, but of course zh does not have any meaning in English except to approximate a phonetic sound, so I could see why some people might think it’s more correct to use j instead.
That was beautiful but there is still 238 kg on the world record’s list. Why?
Not an IWF controlled comp, therefore records don’t apply. Same goes with the Chinese nationals last year when Lu Xiaojun’s rival broke the snatch world record (I think?).
