World Records

The 105kg (231lbs) division at the current World Weightlifting Championships has been nothing short of incredible. In the clean and jerk, three world records were set in succession before Ilya Ilin, the greatest weightlifter of recent years (ever?), ended up on top with a 532.4# lift, en route to gold in the total and the clean and jerk and a silver in the snatch.

The clean and jerk battle reaches its crescendo at 1:16.10.
