I first saw Myake at the 63 USA Nationals in 1963 in Harrisburg, PA AND i COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE IMPRESSED. His style was perfect.

One of the greatest of all-time. Two Olympic titles. 25 world records. One of the unique things about Yoshinobu and his brother, Yoshiyuki, was their slow clean pull. They'd ease the bar off the floor, and they looked like they could barely deadlift it. Then when it was waist high--BOOM!--they'd be under it in a flash.
