The Strongest - München 72

Segment of “Visions of Eight” movie (Golden Globe Award in 74), a eigth sequence movie filmed during 72 Olympics by eigth directors. This one was made by Mai Zetterling. Watching this sequence, i was betting it was done by a woman. Her work on sounds is very interesting.

Check out the “jerk” at 6:09 min!

This is Clean & Press. At that time, the total included Clean & Press, Clean & Jerk and Snatch. After 1972, C&P was dropped.

You mean shoulder press! haha

Robin is probably referring to the amount of leg drive Alexeev put into that press.

Thanks for the info. I didn’t know the clean and press was still part of the Olympics in 1972.
