Meanwhile in Iran …
Sohrab Moradi (94kg) Clean & Jerks 240kg.
I also saw a huge snatch video, which he hopefully releases soon 🙂
Update: and here it is… the 200kg Snatch video!
Also it should be noted that he is around 96kg here (that’s what the coach told us).
Update: Thanks to JJ in the comments.
Let me explain the situation, he is not automatically retired, the Iranian weighlifting federation (under Rezazadeh) made him retired without notifying him ! now Rezazadeh is gone and the new federation wasn’t aware of that, when they wanted to submit his name for Asian Championship, they found out the whole story.
They are trying to convince IWF that was just a mistake but he can’t participate in Houston because of that 6-month period. and now they are worry about his participatiion in Rio. cuz per new rules you have two compete in two official competitions before the Olympcics, he will participate in Asian Championship next year but that’s it. there is no IWF Grand Prix YET in IWF calendar.
So that explains the sudden release of those videos …
