Pyrros Dimas, Greece

1998 World Championship, Lahti, Finland: Three time Olympic champion (1992, 1996, 2000) and bronze Olympic medalist in 2004, Pyrros Dimas (Greece) was probably one of the most charismatic lifters of all-times and most definitely one of the best clutch lifters that ever stepped on the lifting platform. Selected footage features his snatch and sj on his way to the gold medal at the World Championship in 1998.
