Meanwhile in Russia …
I think by now it’s safe to assume that Dmitry Berestov did not retire.
Today he did a 190kg Snatch + Snatch Pull.
I guess we will see him next in the Russian Championships (August 18-25).
Alternative Theory: He is just the guy on the team, who breaks in all the brand new Eleiko stuff. Look at the 25s, they are not even unwrapped!
Read the translation Dmitry Klokov’s interview with him here.

Nah, Gregor. This is just the weightlifter equivalent of dese utes that keep the sticker on their caps indefinitely… Dem reds might be three years old…
Tom Bennett says
He’s too strong to “not” compete…Right up there with Klokov and Akkaev.
It looks like a no lift to me.
It’s an ATG make. 4 white lights
Did he even hold that one
i know he is coaching krasnov.
The crazy part of this video are the dozens upon dozens of eleiko competition! plates merely used for training. Expensive as all hell.
Who can simply walk away from the barbell when you’re that freakin strong.
