Meanwhile in Kazakhstan …
Oh, and did i mention that he is currently recovering from a back injury he got a week ago? He can’t Clean and Jerk, Squat or Deadlift because of it.
Update 22.07.2014: His 160kg, 190kg and 200kg. It’s fun to see his reaction and decision to try 200 after the 190.
Him working up to the 200 seemed like a very spontaneous thing to me. After 140 you could feel that he realized he has got more today. From this point on it went pretty quickly. 60, 70, 90 and then “Not sure, try 200”. It was awesome to witness it live.
Update: Here is what happened after the Snatch
Update: Here is Dmitry’s own video from that day
