Kydyrbayev Zhassulan 94kg KAZ

Kydyrbayev Zhassulan 94kg
Kydyrbayev Zhassulan was one of seventeen lifters busted at the 2015 World weightlifting championships in Houston. It continues to be the same countries busted every year, mainly former republics of the Soviet Union; ie Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Belarus. It is beyond belief that Bulgaria, with a horrendous record of doping is challenging the ruling that they be disqualified from competing at the 2016 Olympics.

There were also two North Koreans caught; a male and female. Both disqualified for Letrozole. See article;  Indirect androgen doping by oestrogen blockade in sports

ZAICHIKOV Alexandr KAZ 105kg

Good example of pull from knees. The bar barely brushes the thigh, there is no hitting. There is virtually no horizontal displacement. This is Soviet textbook technique and the technique has not changed in 30 years.
ZAICHIKOV snatched 180kg and CJ 221kg. This was one of 2 misses with 231kg! He is a future star.

Om North Korea 56kg at 2015 World Weightlifting Championships

Om increased his own world CJ by 1 kg with 171kg on his 2nd attempt. He then jumped to a staggering 175kg. The photo shows his pull under with 175kg; he stood with the massive weight. On the photography side of things this was my last time at this vantage point. The intense red luminescence of the electric board as a background was a photographer’s nightmare.
