1967 Article on the 600 lb Clean and Jerk

Olympic Weightlifting

Kind of a neat read. Too bad it's in Comic Sans.
The closest anyone's got to 600 in competition is 586, although Rezazadeh claims a 600+ in training.

That's pretty interesting. With more intense drug testing and the general decline of weightlifting as a sport it might be a long time before we see someone who can even equal Taranenko's lift. Unless the Chinese dig up a huge ass lifter. Or gene doping becomes more widespread.

Pisarenko claims 270kg, and cleaned 280 right before he was suspended for 2 years. Alexeev also acheived these numbers(as was witnessed by my coach) so without a doubt it is only a matter of time before it is accomplished in competition.

If only the Soviet Union would have hung around a few more years...

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.
