Paris, France, 1949: Legendary lifter John Davis (USA) cleans and jerks the Apollon railroad-car wheels. He succeded in his fourth public try to lift the famous axle which diameter was 1.93 inches and weight was 366 pound.

The first attempt also crushes him, literally. Watch carefully after the 2nd attempt he almost passes out.

Lift Up is a cool site for old-school OL videos.

Early arm bend! One strong dude.

Afraid? Yes. Learning or training in small steps.

Thanks for the link.

Very cool site. I wonder why the press was eliminated from competition?

Check out Suleymanoglu from Turkey at 132 pounds. He snatched 336 pounds and C&Jed 418.25 pounds!

The press was eliminated in 1972 due to lax judging (excessive back bend and knee kick) and because meets were taking too long. By 1972, the clean & press had come to look like a clean & standing bench jerk.
