History of Olympic Weightlifting
The Lift Up project is brought to you by chidlovski.com.
1980 Olympics, Moscow, USSR: Starry night of one of the best all-time Czech lifters Ota Zaremba. Experimenting and re-shuffling of the athletes in different weightclasses by the Soviet team turned into a triumph of Zaremba who stole the show with a brilliant performance in the 100 kg class. The footage features his successful cj of 215 kg and a true joy of the Olympic champion and his coaches.
