    Olympic weightlifting

    I'm at home today, and just watched a 237 and a 253 pound snatch. The 253 is a WR.

    By a 139 pound woman.

    This is incredible.

    Wow, she's got one huge snatch.

    Forgive me, I couldn't resist. That's simply amazing.

    Saw some womens weight yesterday. The chinese gold medalist was amazing. Even though she failed on her last attempt, she still made it look easy.

    Both the men's and women's team for China are impressive. Tremendous physiques as well.

    The coverage is a little frustrating -

    According to Yahoo and to the nbc website, mens weightlifting will be on between 3 and 4 EST.

    So far, I've watched soccer, archery, and swimming.

    Now, getting to see a little soccer was nice, and I've always thought archery was cool, but I'd really like it if there was some way to know more precicely when stuff would be on.

    The good stuff will hit on Saturday-- the 85kg's lift from 2am to 6pm EST on CNBC. Even though Dimas hurt his wrist, I'm still anxious to watch him lift.

    Monday night from 12:35am to **** knows when EST on NBC will be the SHW's, where we'll see some real badassery....Hamman and Rezazadeh are two I'm going to be looking out for.

    Ya, I figured that out lol. I just didn't know who it was.

    So far I have only seen weightlifting twice being aired. I think the men start tomorrow?

    They have on Dish Network. I watched them lift 2 days ago. Don't worry. There is more to come.

    If you go to www.nbcolympics.com, there is a schedule of what is on when.

    It wasn't accurate yesterday. I'm not taping 4 hours of coverage to fast foward thru just to find out the schedule was wrong - so I guess I'll see it if it's on when I'm home and watching TV with nothing else to do.

    Hamman probably won't make much of a splash as he is quite a bit off of the world's best. Hossein, or another lifter just may break the 600 lb barrier, but it is not too likely. I would LOVE to see that. I am definitely going to record the superheavies.

    580 clean and jerk from Rezah was impressive.

    Shane hit an AR on his clean and jerk which is a great feat for him since its his last olympics. He is sold himself short not being a better snatcher but still awsome on the clean and jerk.

    Dimas took brozen sadly.. I really wish he would have won 4 golds!

    I have vids of all this aswell.

    Is Rezah the Iranian guy?

    Little stumpy fat bloke in a light blue lycra leotard.

    He was immense. Dunno his name but i've watched him in the european trials and his lifting was amazing. I think he nailed a 263.5kg C&J. That may be what FI is referring to, not sure, sorry. Impressive anyway.
