Yeah but Dimas is at a bodyweight of 180 lbs. Also a three time gold medalist in his weight class. Pound for pound one of the strongest lifters and considered by many to be arguably the best olympic lifter of all time.

yeah, thats Ronny Weller. I think he was a silver medalist in the 96 summer games? Botev does some incredible lifting too.

The Dimas vid has been around for a while now but I remember the first time ever watching it and was just incredibly inspired. He handles big weight like it was a joke. Thos elite oly lifters are just strong.

Dimas is one of the legends of the sport but I certainly wouldn't call him "the best." Naim Suleymanoglu was and Halil Mutlu is at least as good as him. If Halil wins the gold in 2008, he will have won the gold four times in a row. An unprecedented feat in the sport. Though if Bulgaria hadn't joined the Soviet boycott in 84' Naim would certainly win a medal there (possibly ending his career with four golds.) Also Naim has a staggering 58 world records in his career. And yes I'm a fan :)

Is Mutlu going to be allowed to compete in 2008? I thought he tested positive.

I have a video of the Suleymanoglu vs. Leonidis at the 1996 Olympics, and it's awesome.

Yes he will compete in 2008, penalty ends in 4/20/2007. He missed the European Championship. :(

That showdown at 96' is one of the most memorable nights of my childhood. Everybody was ecstatic and out of control when Naim won the gold. My mother and grandmother started crying, my father was jumping up and down around the house.Even my 65 year old grandfather,god rest his soul, was crushing my bones with a bearhug. Everybody was drinking and singing or dancing. Some people on the shore actually dove into the sea with their clothes on! :D

Can you upload it to rapidshare for me? Or post it in some way? I'd be eternally grateful.
