Awesome! 15 years old below 70kg kid doing 175kg C&J!

And something irrelevant that i noticed:
Article title : The LeBron James of Weightlifting
Article body : “In 37 years of coaching, I’ve never seen anything like this kid,” said Dennis Snethen, coach of the U.S. team at the Beijing Olympics and a former longtime top executive of USA Weightlifting. “He’s the Michael Jordan of weightlifting in America.”

This guy is unbelievably strong. His torso to leg ratio looks a bit lower than others, meaning it is physically harder for him to get all that weight up. Hope he become world champion one day!

ya he's a monster, especially for an American .. that isn't a popular sport in the US, or at least it wasn't.. Crossfit has really helped to change that I think. So as much hate Crossfit gets, they've done a ton of good by opening up so many gyms and getting people to perform some oly's. That alone has probably accelerated the US's chances at finding more athletes who can compete on the world stage.

Also it's just crazy to hear CJ talk, I was just mindblown to realize he was only 16. It's unreal. Just feels like he should be so much older now, but that's what happens when you break onto the scene at _11_ wtf.
