Olympic Lifting Greatness

Ilya Ilin is a 3 time world champion, 2 time Olympic gold medalist in the 94kg class. The impressive thing to me is the speed he has getting under the bar in his snatch and especially his jerk. Those of us that struggle with grasping the speed of these movements can get a better perspective on what kind of speed can truly be achieved. And of yeah he was born in 1988 and won his first Olympic gold medal at the 2008 games in china, so check out these videos and enjoy.
