Couple of highlights for US, couple of donwers.
Maurus looks like a stud indeed. Great clean & jerk. I wonder if his future is at 85kg; he still looks so lanky for a really good WL’er.
CJ had a strong performance in the snatch; bummer that he bombed out on the squat jerk. I still think switching is a good move for him long-term, though. His split jerk always was a little on the messy side, and I think he actually looks pretty smooth in the squat jerk. So young, still loads of potential there.
Robles winning the gold - I mean, it’s hard to argue with three golds, right? Good for her.
Mattie medaled across the board and should be happy, but I like what she said - bummed because her best lifts would’ve given her a shot at gold and she was a few kilos off in both lifts. I see what you’re saying that her frame might be a little better at 75 - is she any taller than Lidia? Just saying, Lidia is a good looking woman, I think Mattie would still look fine at 75 (sadly for the single guys out there, she is taken!) but it depends if she feels like she’d carry the weight well and get strong enough.
