History of Olympic Weightlifting
The Lift Up project is brought to you by chidlovski.com.
The last gold Olympic medal for Team Bulgaria in the 20th century was brought by Galabin Boevski in Sydney, 2000. He managed to lift 6 for 6. The clip features the last clean and jerk attempt for 195 kg and the joy of the crowd and Olympic gold medalist in the 69kg weightclass.
