    Lasha Talakhadze or Ray Williams? Both are phenomenal athletes but I’m going with Lasha. Weightlifting is just so much more challenging than powerlifting imo.

    well, if they switched sports, Lasha would come closer to Ray's numbers than vice versa. But that's true of most weightlifters. But that doesn't necessarily mean they'd dominate powerlifting meets. All strength athletes should just have a tug of war to determine whos the strongest.

    I think Lasha has him edged out, it looks like he will be able to do some unthinkable lifts if he keeps progressing. Ray's deadlift might be the most overlooked lift in the IPF, about as untouchable as his squat in the SHW division.

    I think weightlifting feats are far more impressive but Ray's definitely fun to watch.

    Here's Clarence (a failed weightlifter) fucking around in the gym and pulling sumo on a whim his first time. Hits 660....
