Olympics about to start i had to look up australia’s best chance, poor bugger is ranked 20th in the world and is the commonwealth games gold medalist. If there were no Iranians, Arminians, russians he would be alot closer to the medals. I was suprised to see the top ranked American at 25.
Going to compare Damon Kelly, australia’s number 1 PR with world records
Snatch WR is 214kg in 2011, Damon 171kg
Clean and jerk 263kg in 2004, Damon 218kg
Total 472kg in 2000, Damon 390kg
No pressure Damo, C’mon!!
Do we thing these records will be broken?
The number one ranked heavy weight from Iran is only 23 y/o, wow! and to think he has a few years left in him??? His PR total is 451kg.
His legs are abit skinny though, yeah right. http://www.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=http://liftup.chidlovski.net/liftup/images/i_athletes/b991.jpg&imgrefurl=http://liftup.chidlovski.net/liftup/l_athleteResult.asp?a_id%3D991&h=300&w=400&sz=21&tbnid=oeVSEw6sZsKamM:&tbnh=95&tbnw=127&prev=/search%3Fq%3DSALIMIKORDASIABI%2BBehdad%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=SALIMIKORDASIABI+Behdad&usg=__ZAEwuJMpR796ranyrdinxpfpbBA=&docid=UYAebJ7iqYh5hM&sa=X&ei=9DgPUIGIA5CbmQXKwoC4BQ&ved=0CE8Q9QEwAA&dur=377
