how does the Golden Formula account for doing 3 lifts in a meet instead of 2?
the hip thrust adds a very significant amount to the lift, as does the better equipment now.
The "records" mentioned 20/10/1984 were done in Belgrade I believe, I have no idea why Naims 56kg records 134,172.5 and 305 were never offically recognised,it is a strange piece of IWF history?so no 56kg lifter prior to Mutlu ever did exceed the 300 officially, although the Korean tried in 1992 OGTerziiski claimed the "WR" jerk of 171 at the 1987 WWC Ostrava,In regards to Arthurs records,they are Soviet recognised record lists and not IWF lists, so they are similarilties and differences over 50 odd years of lifting?also some "Historians" have confused Hafis Sulem.... and Naim,Hafis no relation, lifted for both USSR and Turkey, was WW Champion 1989 (USSR) and broke WRs in snatchat 59kg (1995 Euros) whilst lifting for Turkey.thanks Ron, hopefully the IWF will release some more info online, but I believe some of their older publications may still be available ??JPW
Two lifters prior to Mutlu hit a 300kg total at 56kg. Naim Suleymanoglu did it at the 1984 Europeans (I think) via 132.5 and 170 for 302.5 - that was an official IWF total for a World Record. Later in September he snatched 132.5 and clean and jerked 165 for 297.5 and after 2 attempts made 170.5 on his 4th attempt. Even later in 1984 he lifted in the World Cup in Sarajevo but as a 60kg lifter and did World Record lifts of 142.5 and 185.5 at only 17. He never cleaned and jerked 172.5. Also, Naim never held all the 56kg and 60kg world records at the same time. He did snatch the world record in Varna with 132.5 but Oksen Mirzoyan broke it with 133 Naim then tried 133.5 on his 4th but missed. So he actually only held 5/6 world records between the classes. After Naim came Mitko Grablev who did 132.5 and 167.5 in 1988 in Seoul although he would later test positive. Ryan
