    i might be wrong, but i believe lu xiao jun used to be a sprinter and he started weightlifting fairly late, around 19 yo or so.

      i heard that as well. i wonder at what age he learned the lifts, i.e., whether he learned them early on for his work as a sprinter, or whether he first learned them at 19. either way, very impressive.

    I believe I read he was asked that after last years worlds and I remember reading he switched at 18. He also said he best back squat up till that time was 300kg. shows him doing what looks like 245kg pause squat with the 2nd rep being a regular squat. Did you catch him squatting at the training hall?

    It would be great if you could give us a perspective on the American lifters and their performance. USAW did not do a good job of keeping us abreast.
