Meanwhile in China …
Wu Jingbiao (56kg London Silver medalist) uploaded a pretty big Snatch.
Let the weight guessing begin 🙂
Update: Thanks to Viktor in the comments who confirmed it is 143 kg.
Below is a color corrected still frame from the video.
Based on that my guess is bar+(20+10+20+5+2.5+collar+1.5)*2 = 143kg
Remember, the current World Record in the 56kg is 138kg held by Halil Mutlu.
Certainly a reasonable guess when you take into account who we are talking about, how much he struggled and the applause he got.
Post your guesses in the comments. Feel free to go all out CSI on this one.
Update: His bodyweight was 59.5kg.
Color Corrected Still Frame
The inner most plate is definitely a blue tone.
Update: Video is now on YouTube.
I’m not so sure… looks pretty green on the other side.
I take this back!
Plate enthuast says
I train with Zhangkong plates, you want to look at the inner part of the plate where the iron inside is. The outside of the bumpers absorb the majority of the force and over time gets discoloured and faded. For example the yellow looks brown and the red looks yellowly/brown.
If you look in the inside of the right plate, although it is greenish on the outside, the inner is blue.
Also with Zhangkong plates, although they are all similar thicknesses, it does increase in size with weight of the plate.
The most outside plate looks like a DHS one hence different type of material and hue.
looks like the inner of the plate on the right says 20, even though it looks a little green. I doubt he would be struggling like that if it was 123kg. unbelievable hip flexibility
I think it is 137,5. I agree with the big plates, it is def 4×20 and 2×10, but the size of the smaller ones, red and white is the same, so i think they are the same and weigh 2.5, so it is 4×2,5, collars = + 5 and 2×1.25. Still beats the WR if that is true.
its : bar 20kg. 4 x blue 20x 4 = 80. 2 green 10×2 =20. 2 x white = 5kg x 2 = 10 + smallred = 2.5kg x 2 = 5 + collars 2.5kg x2 = 5 + smallyellow = 1.5kg x 2 = 3kg…makes it 143kg. = pretty sick shit
This is 143kg. The announcer at 49:01 of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nf-qU4bPJo (2012 Chinese nationals 56kg snatch) says that during a test of strength before the competition, Wu Jingbiao completed a 143kg snatch.
Thanks for clearing this up
