Great performance by Ian Wilson at the 2014 U.S. Junior Nationals.
He nailed a 170kg Snatch and 205kg C&J weighing 100.3kg.
This would have gotten him Gold in C&J and Total at the 2013 Jr. Worlds .
- Snatch: 160 166X 170
- Clean & Jerk: 195 205 210X
Here is the 170kg Snatch in slow motion.
HookGrip has a composite of the Snatch (as well as a nice sequence).
Also check out 13 year old Clarence Cummings’ lifts from that meet.
Everytime I see this guy I still feel that there is hope for us long-limbed lifters
And he weighed in at 100.3! That’s a lot of room left to grow in that weight class
Tom Bennett says
He looked like he had more in the snatch. Beast.
And he does insane amounts of cardio, look at his instagram
disregard, that’s not him
It wouldn’t just put him on the podium at junior worlds, it would have put him in 1st! Rodion Bochkov won with 374.
A few other things about this: this tops Donny Shankle’s best comp total (373). It is the eighth highest Sinclair in US history.
That’s phenomenal! It represents a major improvement from his performances at the 2013 Jr. Worlds (158/191/348) and the 2013 Universiade (158/197/355). And he does have room to grow
Steve S says
Didn’t he go to both of those as a 94 though?
john goris says
yes. he was too damn tall to be a 94 though. glad he started eating.
Nope. He was a 105 at both and weighed in between 98 and 99 kg.
How old is he?
Looks very promising. Great performance. I hope to see him soon on the senior tournaments.
Born 01.08.1994. So he just turned 20
Wally Broccoli says
He and Clarence Cummings. Future of US Weighlifting. Too bad what happened to Rob Adell
I doubt he’s back for good, just dropping by more likely.
Wally Broccoli says
Rob Adell made a 170kg snatch at 96kg (albeit with straps), it was the most impressive lifting I’ve seen. I personally thought if he continued to train he could’ve done 175/215.
Apparently Rob is back. John Broz has a vid up.
Don’t know what he did, but he is way faster now!. Best wishes for him!
Dude Weightlifting says
Is anyone going to address the elephant in the room?
Go ahead, but don’t hide behind a nickname.
missing 166 but still going up to 170 and making it. Huge balls …
Thomas Meyer says
How the hell does he recover from the snatch in that position?! Amazing.
He’s the best hope for US Weightlifting. If he can add 25-30kg he can be a potential medalist on the world stage.
