Meanwhile in Poland at the 2014 European Youth Championships …
17 year old Simon Martirosyan from Armenia snatched a new Youth World Record in the +94kg category.
182kg, surpassing the 181 from Gor Minasian.
What’s more, he did it at 108.6kg bodyweight!
Update: A 215kg Clean & Jerk also earned him the Total World Record with 397kg (which would have bumped Aramnau off the podium at Seniors Europeans 105).
He also took a shot at the Clean & Jerk Record, but missed 221kg.
Update 22.08.2014: Simon tried 183kg at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olmypics, but was not given that lift.
