They interviewed him while he was in the training camp in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

It’s so awesome that he can speak some English. I wish they asked him what his best squats were.

Tom Bennett says
He seems like he had fun at the worlds…very strong dude. Cool interview!
When I saw him at the World’s in 2011 at 94 kg I thought he looks a bit skinny. I was already suprised back then by his lifting. When he then moved to the 105 kg class I was even more surprised to see him do so well. His improvements are amazing and I enjoyed the interview very much.
He could have won with 194,240 but he underestimated ilya ilyin.
