In lower level weightlifting competition, you'll see all kinds of crazy things, including power cleans and power snatches.

Though you are right, there are some that can power clean more than they full clean...but they have not reached their full potential from the standpoint that they potentially could full clean even more. A couple of reasons why they power clean more than full clean...because they have a strong back and their legs are lagging. Football players in particular don't emphasize the "front squats" but they emphasize the "back squat" and the "deadlift"...hence their full clean lags.

Re: Clean(s) question

People who PC more than a true clean are either technique limited or lack sufficient leg strength to squat the weight up.
