Well if you didn't alter any rules, regulations or environments and lifted that weight then it would be an official record, now wouldn't it?
The proper name for what you're doing here escapes me at the moment, but you're creating a ridiculous situation and trying to use it as an argument for your position. And that's shitty arguing.
Far as I see it, the man lifted a junior world record, in training, with straps. That's it. I'm not sure if Broz is intentionally creating controversy with the way he titles these vids or if that's just an unintended byproduct, but he sure seems gifted at getting everybody's panties up in a bunch. And maybe that's all he was doing with this, trying to keep his lifter relevant and talked about after a disappointing injury and subsequent withdrawal from the American Open in the hopes that somebody'll bend a rule to make Pat eligible to lift for the States in 2012. But I'm just musing now.
