I think Chemerkin attempted something like 272.5kg in 2000 but couldn't handle the clean.
Yeah, I have no idea who's going to do it now. Rezazadeh sounds like he's retired, and 263 looked difficult enough for him. Udachin kinda fizzled. Scherebatis hasn't broke 260 yet. It's going to be a while.
If only the USA and the USSR weren't such dicks to each other and boycotted each others athletes, Pisarenko wouldn't have been suspended and I guarantee you we would've had the 272.5kg C&J.
