Kids these days …
Here is a video of then 14 year old Hetag Hugaev (or Khetag Khugaev) who Cleans 174kg from blocks at 69kg bodyweight.
Since then he has moved up in weight and is now dominating the 77kg. This year (now 15 years old) Hetag won the 77kg at the 2013 Youth Worlds with a 312kg total (144kg Snatch + 168kg C&J).
I think this was not the last time you heard from him.
Update: At age 16 he won the Russian U17 Championships with a 164kg Snatch and 196kg C&J (at 85kg).

its cause there is rammstein playing
Looks a bit like Klokov’s spot, same door just the wooden radiator paneling has been taken away in Klokov’s videos. Insane lift, guessing he didn’t push himself too hard on the lifts with a 15kg lead…

Possibly Clarence Kennedy’s cousin. Unsure though
The strongman from Ossetia (or should that be “strongbox”?). Phenomenal talent. Great speed under the bar. It’s the ones without any appreciable muscle mass like Khugaev that really boggle the mind. Quality, not quantity.
I meant to write “strongboy” not “strongbox.” But strong is the operative word in any event.
Okay so he’s fourteen, lifting on Klokov’s platform and has a higher total than any of us ever will. I didn’t realise it was possible to hate someone this much. I hope he ends up showing the Chinese some strong competition.
I'd rather post as HOOOOOOODOR says
Misha used to lift there too 🙂
absolutely incredible. pretty difficult to comprehend really. 14 year-olds i know are happy to bench 135lbs

damn he’s freaki’n quick ! He lifted the bar so low and still managed to get under it. Unbelievable.
