Andrei Aramnau - Snatch and Total World Records

At the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Andrei Aramnau stunned everyone when he broke the world record for the snatch in the 105 kg (231 lb) weight class, becoming the smallest person to ever snatch 200 kg (440 lbs).  If that wasn't enough, he also went on to perform a 236 kg (520 lb) clean and jerk to break the total world record, and allow him to bring the gold medal back to Belarus.

Only the Mighty...

  1. Truly a great athlete in a sport that, like the love and mercy of the true Creator YAHWEH, is not respected by the west. We, in weightlifting know different. We know Andrei Aramnau cannot be overpowered by anyother. And, the relevency of this, sport (aka The King of Sport) is universal to all others. Let him, the Creator forever be glorified through Olympic Weightlifting!!!
