    yeah the french guy. Lin Qingfeng should win this, unless he starts too high on the C&J.

    I think they saw everyone else starting high, so they went higher than they would have otherwise

    Lin was in a league of his own and I so badly wanted him to clean and jerk 198 successfully. Razvan Martin also looked exceptional, his jerk was simply magnificent and a bronze is definitely respectable for anyone, especially a 20 year-old. What was the name of that second French guy who got injured? His physique was to die for.
