At least in the USA, height is very important. It is correlated with both income and status. Even short women want tall men for mates as a result, and this has been going on for a long time.

So I guess what I'm saying is that I am still not sure what I learned about drug use through looking at world record progressions. I am pretty sure it gives no immediately reasonable information on whether 200kg is possible without drugs or not.
I think no one wants to consider the fact that an American hero in weightlifting was a steroid user (even if it was before his years in olympic weightlifting). Paul Doherty, one of the coaches of Hassle Free, arguably the top youth weightlifting program in the country just got popped for testosterone use at the American Open. I saw two posts about it on goheavy and then complete outrage that the greeks and bulgarians got busted. Yea there is a difference but I still think that there is something to this, I don't know what, but something. I feel it is similar to the korean posting that he doesn't think south korea juices (although he said he was not sure), and the germans defending steiner. None have tested positive but it doesn't necessarily mean they are clean in today's world of strength sport. It will be a while before we can be ever sure that someone is clean in ANY strength sport, not just weightlifting. People forget this.Kim Kwang Hoon cleaned 210 @ 77 and barely missed the jerk. Taehyun Kim did a 460 total i believe. There is no doubt korea has a chance to be a superpower in weightlifting soon enough. No lifter from south korea has ever been busted. Does this reflect their superior skill in weightlifting or the testing system itself. I'll let you decide.
