Here are a couple of Snatches from Luis Mosquera in the 2014 World Championships Training Hall in Almaty.
The 19 year old Colombian worked up to 130kg singles in that session.
This was filmed the day I arrived in Almaty, Friday November 7th. Two days later on Sunday he won the the 62kg Snatch Bronze medal with 141kg.

Update: Here is his 160kg Clean & Jerk from the same session.
Incredible speed! Were you able to find out why he only power snatches?
Unfortunately I have not.

Quite a few of the Colombians seemed to do that, i.e. almost powersnatch. It’s really strange…
What do you mean by “only power snatches”? He has numerous videos of himself doing full snatches on his instagram and his 141 snatch at worlds was definitely not a power . I think his bottom position in the snatch and clean are a little high relative to most other lifters.
i’m going to hazard a guess that it’s because he’s goddamn fast :p
