Here is a very recent video of weightlifter Ilya Ilyin, the most recent 94kg Olympic gold medalist, doing an easy looking 140kg (308lbs) snatch off the blocks. To give you a quick back round on Ilya, since winning the Olympics he has not trained for about a year. So to come off of no training for almost a year and to still be able to make that kind of weight look that routine is very impressive. Be sure to look out for him at WWC 2014 and Rio Olympics 2016.
