  1. These voiceover translations are fucking awful. The Chinese-English translation of what Lu Xiao Jun said was completely inaccurate.

  2. Well done from a technical perspective but looking like a total sausage fest till the last 3rd when they finally spotlighted some female lifters in North & Sub Saharan Africa.

    With the women lifters I found myself getting emotional.

  3. Wow! Who would’ve known! The first story is located in my hometown! San Luis Potosí! México.
    Greetings.

  4. This is a very interesting side of Dmitry Klokov that we are seeing here. He must know something about these graduates that come from schools like Oxford (where his dad was planning to send him to).

    Not entirely sure why he doesn't like these guys but Dmitry's got his interests in weightlifting (and competes), so he's been working way harder for a longer period of time than most of the Oxford/Harvard guys study in their college days anyways,

  5. venga que se pasaron de verga con la música del min 3:00 falto que nos pusieran sombreros y estuviéramos rompiendo piñatas

  6. 5:04 a old chinese plate, maybe a relic from the 50s
    33:49 sad but true. In China, youth athelets don't get a lot of education and not enough of them transition to coachs when atheletic career is over. at the same time, comercial gyms are flooded by PTs who don't know a thing about barbell. I guess there is no market for recreactional weightlifting gym in China.

  7. Вот так тяжелая атлетика потихоньку захватывает мир!?

  8. Its hard to get this sport popular…. because its so hard to watch the god damn event even the worlds…. its not normal you have make it easy to watch it. So young people in country where is not popular can start weighlifting.

  9. great vid..but once again this documentary was still male dominant, there are so many great female weight lifters the IWF could have used…being a new subscriber to IWF…I've noticed that in a lot of their vids…

  10. I watched a fat guy talk about 'strength of will' as if he were some type of head coach for almost two minutes… I imagine the rest of this is a sob story. I'm done here.

  11. I think the weight lifting competition has the most diverse participants and countries.
    A country nobody ever heard of gets a podium and the lifter becoming instant national heroes.
    It's largely dependent on individual strength and skill.

  12. @11:06, the man in the red shirt watching Aukhadov lift is Gennady Anikanov, Klokov and Klokov's father's weightlifting coach. He is the coach Dmitry is talking about here.

  13. I love weightlifting but to say its the most simple sport i cannot really agree…you need special equipment, rules, technique and its easy to get injuries….ckmpared to running, swimming, fighting, where all you need is your body to start. But yeah, its still very fascinating and mind blowing!

  14. A fat guy trying to give an inspirational speech on health, fitness, will power and discipline, just seems farcical.

  15. in Canada, where I live, we don't have a history of weightlifting. It is not very popular. We have hockey, and to succeed in it, you need a lot of money. Parents basically buy their kids way to higher levels. Not sure why I felt I needed to say that. I want to think that weightlifting is not about being in the right groups or on the right teams, or paying your way to the top, it is about lifting weights.

  16. самое главное в штанге самое удобное расположение скилета и мышц при начале поднятии штанги

  17. Никто себя как штангиста так не сделал как Василий Алексеев

  18. на всякий случай: я в Подольлске рвал в полусед 180 кило в 1975 году в декабре.

  19. и не в обиду клоков пахан лучше поднимал сына. просто лучше поднимал – чё там обидного

  20. Olá, gostaria de pedir a vocês que colocassem legenda em Português/Brasil, vocês fizeram um ótimo trabalho.
    Obrigado
