Meanwhile in Kazakhstan …
He weighed in at 107.4kg, so he lifted in the +105kg category (no need to impede preparation for worlds). See the full results below.
How did he do?
This madman got a 185kg Snatch and 239kg Clean & Jerk for a 424kg Total.
You know, just casually lifting 1kg more than the current 105kg C&J World Record 😀 and beating his old PR C&J and Total (185 + 233 = 418 at London 2012).
The Best Part? Still 4 months left for him to improve!
- His attempts were 180, 185, x188 and 230, 239kg
- Added a translation of his post competition interview below

239kg Clean & Jerk
Update: New Videos surfaced
After the competition Ilya gave an interview:
Ilya: It took all just fine, especially considering that I did not compete for two years – with a smile, said Ilyin.
The result are colossal. I added weight in the Clean and Jerk. After London had not snatched 185kg. Although it will be necessary to work on the Jerk. I did not yet fully perfect it. 188 kg after three attempts will be fine. Come the time of the WOrld Championships in November in Almaty I will show good results. I’m 99 % sure that I will win the gold medal.
Why did you start ins the +105kg category and not the one in which you plan to perform at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro?
Ilya: Because today I weigh 107.4kg. I did not “chase” [the 105kg number] and lose weight. I just came out of the house, weighed myself and stepped on the platform. I feel fine in the new category. Of course, we must also make sure that the newly added weight is quality weight, muscle mass. If I succeed, it will be possible to Snatch 190kg and 242-243kg in the C&J. It’s real. Still four months until World Championships.
But in September the Asian Games in Korea will start.
Ilya: I don’t have time to prepare for the Asian Games. I just want to start at the Worlds in 2014, as it will be held in Almaty. The people of Kazakhstan should live to see my performance.
Who will be your main rival in the World Cup?
Ilya: Ruslan Nurudinov and Andrei Aramnau. They come to mind, because they are talented and really show results. There are strong guys. Now I will not remember all the names. In any case, only one will not let me win. The one who goes all out and surpasses himself, he will win.
You will be upset with silver?
Ilya: I have only one goal – gold. I always winners and losers will not.
You and your team are training separately from the team of Kazakhstan. How do you evaluate the performance of your athletes players in the Anatoly Khrapaty memorial tournament ?
Ilya: My team is at 75 percent of its capacity. Overall, not bad. All athletes in the Kazakhstan team are now quite strong. I’m happy about it. The team finally looked like a team. But this tournament – is only a stage of preparation. They do not need to specifically peak here. We must go all out and show ourselves on the world stage. What sense does it make to do wonders here, and then take a 5-6th place at worlds? That’s why we teach our children.
Are you satisfied with Almas Uteshov’s results? Soon he will start at the Asian Games.
Ilya: Honestly, he could have performed better. He will need to work on the psychological aspect. Almas slightly underestimated this competition, and therefore missed several attempts. I think that in a month he will be in peak form.
And why did Vladimir Sedov not compete here?
Ilya: He has a minor injury. But do not worry. Now he is treated, and recovers. I think that in a couple of weeks will be back to normal. All the guys want to go to the Asian Games or the World Cup and bring Kazakhstan very good results.
Recently you worked on your thesis on the training of highly skilled weightlifters. Now, during preparation for the World Championships is it put on hold?
Ilya: No, I’m working and going to work on my thesis. I think I have enough brain to convey to people the knowledge I have. Why does it come easy for me? Because I work in the industry. And I help my supervisors. I still have time, thanks to the people who surround me. I am a happy person, because next to me there are always those who love me.
Do you have any enemies?
Ilya: I have no enemies because I am a very positive person. And I’m happy that I live on this planet. I have no time to acquire enemies. I have a goal, a mission, and I’m doing it.
