Lu Xiaojun CHN 77kg twenty frame sequence CJ

An easy opener with 200kg for the dynamic explosive Chinese lifter Lu Xiaojun. He would be a favorite to win gold in London. However the depth chart in China is constantly changing and fresh new faces appear quickly.

Comparative photos of key positions in snatch technique

About the layout for the sequences;
please note this was a quick job, very crude quick scaling and not consist sizing of
the lifters. The selected lifters were somewhat taken at random(depending on similar camera frame rate) and are from left to right

  • KIM Min-Jae KOR (187 kg attempt) 7th place in total
  • SEDOV Vladimir KAZ 6th place in total
  • MOHAMMADPOURKARKARAGH Saeid IRI 3rd place in total

Actually Sedov lifted in 105kg category but weighed 94.65kg in the competition. He is the 2009 World champion at 94kg.
The positions are reasonably consistent in the key positions considering the lifters may have different body hts and limb lengths.

Sa KOR 77kg partial clean sequence

His clean technique is very efficient IMO. Standing up from his clean with 211kg at the 2011 worlds was ridiculously easy, ie. very fast. Still my guess is that he isn’t the biggest squatter at 77kg. Precision of body position throughout the squatting motion and speed strength probably take priority in most of his squatting sessions.

The 2008 Olympic champion didn’t disappoint at the 2011 world championship, by again trying a new WR 211kg CJ. He has been hampered by injuries throughout his career.This four year Olympic cycle has been similar, he sat out the 2010 worlds due to injury. This is a familiar story with most the 2008 gold medalists at Beijing.
