Rostami IS the front runner for gold!
not trying to take away from their accomplishments but you have to remember that only the 85 guys back in the 70s (lighter weight classes) were able to lift weights like this. and We all know what they are on…
“not trying to take away”…
We all know how comments like that end 🙂
