Beast of the Week: David Bedzhanyan
There are so many really strong people out there that deserve to be claimed Beast of the Week; however many go unnoticed because I have yet to find out about them. Some how I knew nothing of David Bedzhanyan yet he holds the World Record for the clean and jerk in the 105kg weight class. His approach to the clean and jerk reminds me a lot of my favorite lifter Pyrros Dimas which is pretty neat; his effortless clean, his simplistic power jerk, this lift as with Pyrros’ record breaking clean and jerk in 1996 were almost identical. Not only does David have an official 238kg world record he also an unofficial record with a 240kg clean and jerk; for all of these reasons I vote for David Bedzhanyan as this weeks beast of the week.
