After missing both his openers in the Snatch and C&J and losing the snatch to Kim Tuan Thach’s 135kg, Om was under a lot of pressure. In the Press conference he said
“I was so afraid of losing because I put so much effort into winning at the Asian Games [with a 170kg World Record] a few weeks ago.”
He also mentioned the rivalry with China. Despite them having such a big pool of lifters to draw from he managed to beat their athletes and will beat them again. “I will protect my gold medals.”
- Om finished fifth in the Snatch. He is the first lifter to win Men’s 56kg Total after failing to reach the podium in the Snatch.
- Om’s and Thach’s 296 Total was the highest weight in the competition since Mutlu’s 300 in 2001

Hey Gregor, how come you aren’t posting any strongman, powerlifting, gymnastics or crossfit anymore? Is this just an Oly site now?
As always, I just post stuff I enjoy watching. If there is anything that I like from other disciplines I’ll post it.
Yeah that’s cool man, it’s your site, it just sucks for the rest of us that love those other disciplines. This used to be the first site I’d jump onto in the morning, seeing what amazing feats of strength have happened, but now it’s just Oly lifting, it used to have such a great mix.
Hey Adam, I think there’s these cool things called Google and YouTube, I heard a lot of things show up on them when you type in stuff like “strongman” and “crossfit”
Come on Bob, no need to rub it in.
Sorry Gregor, just don’t think anyone should complain about this site when it is full of good info/videos.
I am just way more selective now. No wrapped half squats etc. I still post powerlifting and strongman stuff. Often not on the site but on ATG’s Twitter and facebook.
