I doubt it. Until he does it in an IWF competition…he’s on the sauce lol[/quote]
What exactly do you doubt here? ninearms posted the results, he’s on there as hitting 190/240. The picture he linked to clearly shows him at the bottom of the squat with 240 racked on his shoulders. I posted a year old video where he cleaned 238 and missed the jerk in an IWF competition. Given all that I don’t think it’s too far fetched to say we’ll see him breaking the world record clean and jerk in an IWF competition.[/quote]
All I’m saying is there’s a lot of lifters that have posted big numbers but once they start doing it in IWF competition the numbers drop. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.[/quote]
It’s true, happens all the time. But this guy cleaned 238 at the -23 Europeans last year. I think he’s the real deal. Really hoping Russia sends him to Europeans this year so we can see what he can do, cause I’m pretty sure it’s still going to be Klokov/Akkaev going to London.
