    Probably my favorite lift of the session.

    Reis hitting the 2nd attempt snatch at 200 was good to see as well, a shame he couldn't go on with it in the C&J.

    Seim looks like he peaked so well for Worlds. I feel like he wanted to take 191 on 2nd attempt snatch so he could have 2 shots at it for a PR, then when he got it first time he didn't really know what to do with the 3rd attempt. But the 253 jerk, he knew it was for a medal, the atmosphere was electric and he got it anyway totally on the limit and coming off a missed 2nd. So happy for him.

    Wish I could only be excited about two lifters putting together exceptional 6/6 performances to sweep golds on the last day of competition.
    I bet you're a really cool guy to hang out with

    Just stating facts, man. For the record I was hoping Lasha would take the total record on his 2nd C&J and take the WR C&J on his 3rd. Damn their sensible strategy.

    I think that its probably a matter of time before he gets banned again, so he should have went for the C&J as well.

    I can't say Im a huge fan or Lasha or the Iranians but I di get a chuckle that he beat two of them this time.

    Now we'll just have to see if the IWF and USAWL get hacked and if the Iranian fanbase goes on a rampage like a bunch of dickbags.

    So we all agree Lasha is overpowered and needs to be nerfed. That 220 looked insane, he moves so fast outta the whole I thought he powered his second attempt. Drugs or not there is no one on PEDS making 220 look like a warmup weight.

    Nobody else has ever done it, even with the 1980s level drug testing. So there is that.

    But without drugs there would be no 220. Easily or with a struggle.
