This is a boy at CrossFit Atlanta, Vasiliy Buharin, wt 68kg, snatching 70 kg on his 3rd attempt. Failed on 1st two attempts.

It would be interesting to see his form with a lighter weight for comparison.

Yes, I probably should have taken videos with lighter weights, but he was power snatching 60kg before going to 70kg (his PR), and I didn't think there was much to learn from that.

When he missed #2, I told him he had it plenty high enough, he just needed to get under it, which he did on #3.

He has only been playing around with O lifts for about 6 months. He's a gymnast.

Good effort. He keeps the bar close and gets a good double knee bend. But he basically muscled it up - hips rising much too fast and high on the start, back was rounded, early arm bend, squat was wide instead of deep.
