Meanwhile in Russia…
Here’s one to watch:
15 year old Vyacheslav Yarkin (listed as Viacheslav Irakin on IWF) snatches 115kg at 63kg bodyweight.
In 2012 at the Youth Worlds in Kosice he lifted 88+106 in the 50kg category.
Update 07.09.2013: 116kg Snatch + 140kg Clean & Jerk won the the U17 62kg Europeans.

Update: 140kg Clean & Jerk
Jay Blais says
anyone else who watched this video and agrees with me i plan on jumping off a tall building with my barbell in a ritual suicide. what is the point of lifting anymore?
Doug Nguyen says
What nation does he lift for? Besides obviously not America..
How you know that he doesn’t lift for America? Easy; he’s not at a crossfit gym hang snatching in the corner with his arms, while listening to annoying techno/rap music.
Joel Leonard says
Can you put Yarkin’s lifts from 2013 Youth Europeans right here???
Sorry, forgot to record.
I hope Kolecki (who is responsible for the stream) will upload the complete sessions.
Good News: Video added. 116+140
new video of him
