Didn't see this. Can you post a video?
His ankle rolled under and 826-lb squat attempt. He lowered his bench and deadlift openers and finished the meet. Many people sharing much respect for Tee after an all-time gutsy performance.
Not sure if he was the only Russian, but I agree. He made every lift look so easy. The fact that he came so close to Ed Coan's 901 is surreal. That is considered by many (myself included) to be the single greatest lift of all time. I am definitely a huge Belkin fan now.
You call a 2,094 total @ 220 raw not doing so well?
No - Larry Williams totaled 2,090 @ 242. There were others.
RE: Amit Sapir - his depth was fine. It wasn't a monolift problem, he jumped the rack command. Sucks to miss a world record on a technicality but he took it gracefully like a man.
