2014 IWF JWC ended with the Superheavyweight

Men’s 105kg

The 17 years old KUROUSKI Rychard’s (BLR) lifted 177kg and won the Gold in the Snatch. With 7kg less than the Polish lifter in the Clean & Jerk he got only Silver, but still managed to make it to the highest sstage of the podium with a Total of 378kg.

After a strong start – Silver with 173kg in the Snatch – the Ukrainian lifter KUBYSHKOVSKYI Leonid only made it to the 6th place with 200kg in the Clean & Jerk. Achieving this lower ranking because of bodyweight, he lost the second place in Total for the same reason.

SAMORAJ Jaroslaw Pawel (POL) only 5th in the Snatch with 12kg less than the Gold Medallist made an impressive “home run” and lifted 208kg in the Clean & Jerk after missing his attempt on 205kg. He took the Silver for the Total from KUBYSHKOVSKYI ending with exactly the same result of 373kg.

4th in the Snatch, KUPTSOV Georgii (RUS) made it to the third place of the podium by luck because of bodyweight in the Clean & Jerk lifting 200kg – just like 3 other lifters heavier than him.

BIDANI Walid won the first Medal – a Bronze – of the competition for Algeria in the Snatch with 170kg.
