Misha never won a gold medal at the Olympics. That is 200kg. He has no reason to lie about the weight on the bar as he does not even compete in weightlifting. 25kg+10kg+20kg+10kg(small russian plates)+2.5kg+Collars(2.5kg)+5kg each side.He was kicked off the Russian team because Rigert wanted to be listed as his #1 coach yet he had never coached Misha in his life so out of principle Misha refused because he couldn't betray his real coach. Rigert never let him on the national team. That is how I understood it.
Uh...Name some of the lifters in the last 30-40 yrs whom you are reasonably sure won Olympic gold w/o enhancement.
A good point, although the libertarian side of me thinks that if there were no banned enhancements, athletes w/ a sense a responsibility about their long-term well-being would establish a good balance between performance and health.Such a balance would become a regular topic of discussion on fora like this one, and stupid (or at least ignorant) abuse would be naturally inhibited. Prohibition tends to multiply excesses.Some folks have a higher threshold for abuse, like the exceptional 90 yr-old smoker, but in general, time will tell.
