@berna56xz (56kg, @hookgripcol) clean and jerking 151kg/331lb (about 2.7x bodyweight!) to go 6/6 while posting a PR 270kg total and winning the 2017 Senior Pan Ams for his first Senior Pan Am title!

2017 85kg Junior World Champion @mesohassona (Qatar, 19 y/o) doing a 150kg/331lb snatch and 190kg/419lb clean and jerk in the training hall at the 2017 Asian Juniors in Kathmandu, Nepal. He is going to lift as a 94 at this competition.

18 year-old @jeison_lopez99 (77, @hookgripcol) front squatting 200kg/441lb for an easy five earlier today in the 2017 Pan Ams training hall in Miami! His max lifetime front squat is 250kg/551lb.

@leidysolis69kg (69kg, @hookgripcol) clean and jerking 143kg/315lb last summer in Rio, where she did 110/143/253 and placed in 4th. In a few days she'll be traveling to Miami for the 2017 Pan Ams for a rematch from the 2016 Pan Ams with @mattiecakesssss -- likely going down on Wednesday July 26th, although the exact schedule and session times won't be finalized until this Saturday. Action with the smaller classes gets underway this Sunday -- if you're in the area, be sure to come see some world-class weightlifting in person!

@ilyailyin_4ever attempting a 250kg/551lb clean and jerk! And in case you haven't seen it, check out our prior video for his 245kg clean and squat jerk! (keep in mind these are older videos, from several years ago -- however, they are previously unpublished)

@ilyailyin_4ever clean and SQUAT jerking 245kg/540lb in training about 1 week before the 2015 President's Cup in Grozny! This is definitely the heaviest clean and squat jerk video ever published and it's fairly likely that it's the heaviest clean and squat jerk ever made in the history of weightlifting.

A side-by-side look at Rebeka Koha's (Latvia, 19 years old) 99kg snatch and 120kg clean and jerk that she made in the process of winning the 58kg division at the 2017 Junior Worlds. This was her first major world-level victory and it adds onto several European Youth and Junior titles.

Rattanaphon Pakkaratha (58kg, @hkgrpthailand, 20 y/o) clean and jerking 121kg/267lb at the 2017 Junior Worlds to take the gold in the clean and jerk. She's the 2014 53kg Youth Olympic Games champion and she just moved up to 58kg in 2017 with appearances at the Asian Seniors and Junior Worlds so far.

19 year-old @mesohassona (85kg, Qatar) snatching 160kg/353lb en route to winning the Junior World title in Tokyo. He came into this meet planning to lift as a 94 (and weighing about 90kg) but he decided to drop down to 85 due to the weaker level of competition, as Sobirov was in prime shape and was probably unbeatable in the 94s. Going forward, including in Nepal at Asian Youth/Juniors, he will be competing in the 94kg category.

18 year-old Zhu Qiaoling (53kg, @hookgripchn) snatching 88kg/194lb at the 2017 Junior Worlds where she easily swept the gold medals with 88/109/197. Like most of the Chinese team at this event, this was her int'l debut.

20 year-old @simonmartirosyan (113.45kg, @hookgriparm) with a VERY close call at the Clean and Jerk Junior World Record -- this is his attempt at a 246kg/542lb lift at the 2017 Junior Worlds, the final lift of the competition. He had the lift all but made and then made a small error in the jerk recovery that caused him to fail the lift at the last moment. We normally don't post failed lifts but a lift of this significance and closeness definitely deserves a look! And given that he'll likely be back at 105 at the 2017 World Championships, this definitely puts the other 105s on notice that he's coming for the title in Nurudinov's absence (Nurudinov plans to return to competition at the 2018 Asian Games).

@cj__cummings (69kg, @hookgripusa, 17 y/o) clean and jerking 183kg/403lb to win the 2017 Junior Worlds with 138/183/321 -- this was his second straight Junior World title and his fourth world title overall, all won within the last 12 months. He'll be skipping the 2017 Pan Ams (in Miami in late July) in order to prepare for the 2017 World Championships being held this fall in Anaheim, California.
