It's almost impossible to prove any of those old time lifts- let's just say he was good strong lifterand any claims of huge lifts should be taken with a grain of salt. Anyone with old time films of lifting should somehow make them public would be great to see and will preserve them

If your talking about Charles Rigoulot snatching 261Lbs with one hand you'd have to prove it to me. Delamarre had many witnesses even the scale attendant was there as the mayor and other public officials. Many claim to this title but can't prove it. Delamarre did.

Как известно, на ОИ-1924 в программе было пятиборье, поэтому, наверно, нужно или добавить еще два упражнения и указать реальные килограммы, или с оговоркой прописать суммы троеборья!

That is good, but not good enough.
I guess Victor Delamarre is still the strongest man in the world eh!
Until someone can prove to me that he or she has lifted double his weight plus 1 and a half pound will I accept it.
In the mean time I wish people would stop referring themselves as the strongest man in the world.

Did Charles lift double his weight with one hand as Delamarre did.?
Only this could make him the strongest man in the world.

I believe he snatched 261lbs on his one handed snatch (right hand).
