Su Dajin China 77kg

This is an exercise that Su was doing in training just days before he lifted at the 2009 Worlds, the weight is 210kg. He is using a snatch grip.

At the recent Asian championships Sept 2015 Su made just one snatch with 150kg. He clearly won’t be in Houston. I will stifle my comments as to the utility of doing this type of exercise loading at anytime, let alone just days before you lift.

Szymon Kołecki POL 94kg

An exemplary pull under. The eleiko bar isn’t quite sure which way it should bend, up or down. Exceptional application of force in the pull.

Maryse Turcotte CAN 58kg

A flash back to the 2003 worlds. While I had been taking weightlifting pictures for some 30 years previously this was the first time for digital photography. There have been huge advances in digital photography to make life easier for the photographer.

Maryse Turcotte was the perfect subject and the perfect poster girl for promoting women’s weightlifting.
