Ilin continues to dominate

Kazakhstan?s 18-year old prodigy ? Ilya ILIN  picked up the thread where he dropped it in 2005. Before last year he was unknown to the weightlifting world, but he came, a 17-year old young man, and captured the junior then the senior world championships titles. No wonder he was elected Best Lifter of 2005.

This year he moved up into 94kg and did not stop before scoring an overwhelming victory here, too. ILIN performed six lifts straight and passed the 400-kg margin (401kg) with his last clean and jerk of 225kg.

In second place we find Andrei ARAMNAU of Belarus (393kg) and in third place Vartan KUKASYAN of Russia (386kg).
