    You probably saw it, but in the Lord of Lifters ARD documentary, they briefly covered the topic of the lifters dying young.

    A quick list of people scrolled up the screen; maybe some names in there you missed....
    I'm not that big of an historian, but I bet you would recognize those names on the spot.

    I have been in contact with one of the producers and they actually used this thread as an additional source.

    The additional names - like Gerd Bonk - were those over 60 which I set as an arbitrary limit.

    I see the video has been 'taken down'.
    Any insight there?

    (obvious answer is ajan could finance quite the legal offensive with the IWF slush fund)

    The original is geographically restricted but still online.

    The one on YT was uploaded by some private channel so it got automatically flagged I presume.

    Hmm, time to see if I can get it to work through a proxy spoofing my location from Vaterland.

    Tried mobile Opera browser with VPN from my smartphone and Opera from Laptop. Set to Europe

    Nada. I can see the starting logo of the documentary for a moment but that's it.

    And no, I'm not going to bother checking out any other VPN's.
