arthur chidlovski's site is interesting in evaluating drug use when you take a look at world record progression over the years.
I'd say its probably zero. But, I believe Shane Hamman could have done it if he had started the sport 4 years earlier
So what's the direction of inference here? Weight is heavier than done by US lifters -> Guy must be on roids?
However, it is usually implied in this forum and others that US lifters are clean. This could be because there is a lot of testing going on in the US, or because Americans are of a higher moral caliber than other athletes. I am assuming the former. In this case, I think it should be allowed to retain the presumption of innocence for other athletes that are being tested a lot. Or is it assumed that US lifters are clean because they are not competitive at the highest level? What numbers are achievable with legal means?
If he could have done it, what's to say that somebody of a similar caliber in another country who did start early didn't already do it?
