Here are a couple of videos that are in need of a translation.
A summary of the main points would be greatly appreciated.
First a video from the press conference after his 94kg domination.
Translation thanks to reader Russ:
We respect Ilya. We understand how difficult it was for you to achieve your victory. The last 1.5 years for you have been very hard. It was understood that you were going to go for a world record and we believed in you. The first time did we have a 2 time olympic champion. You proved to us how easily you lifted those weights. I knew from your first lift that it was yours. Thank you very much and let us congratulate Ilya ilin.
Second guy starts to speak in a different language then he continues in Russian.
You are real and you put on a great show. You are extremely strong and the biggest hero in this sport. All of Khazakstan is for you and we expect you to be in Rio. No one will be as strong as you even in Khazakstan. Hope you will be well prepared for Rio.
Ilyin: I waited 18 years for this. I am much calmer these days because I don’t have the energy I had before. I have to thank my gov’t for their help. Khazakstan is always with me and give me the energy I need. Thanks to everyone. I want to thank my coaches. They really helped me achieve what I wanted and were completely honest with me. I was living with them for the entire training period.
Coach: maybe some point we will talk about our secrets…..(everyone laughs)
Ilyin: I want to thank those who provided me with cooking, those who provided me with the system and everything. We all did it together.
Question about Rio: I can’t answer that question completely but my soul tells me to go to Rio.
