    There was an unbelievable battle in the under 77's at Rio , China's Lu Xiaojun looked certain for gold however Rahimov from Kaz needed this massive lift to tie on total and win as he was lighter in bodyweight .

    I'm always impressed how the Chinese lifters can squat jerk with such precision.

    Yes with Hui retired their 69 / 77 and 85 big three males all squat jerk .
    I think it's best for Asian physiques with their mobility and short / strong legs and long torso , they always seem to nail such upright squat posture .

    I'm really looking forward to the battle in the 85's between Kianoush Rostami and Tian Tao particulary the C&J .
