Three Attempts At 245KG by Behdad Salimi in Rio 2016

Behdad “Salimi” Salimikordasiabi of Iran was eliminated from the pursuit of his second Olympic title after failing to clean-and-jerk 245KG at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

The attached video features all three attempts to lift 245KG by Salimi. The first got 2 red lights out of 3. The second lift was successful and got all 3 white lights but was ruled out as “no lift”.

The decision caused reasonable questions and, by all means, requires a public clarification from the officials. We went to the for the official interpretation of the event but the site was hacked down.

With a phenomenal 216KG world record and gold medal in the snatch program, Salimi was a real contender perrhaps for a gold medal or, for sure, a medal in the total in the tournament.

While waiting for the IWF site to be back, we can review the video of failed clean-and-jerk lifts by Behdad Salimi in Rio last night.
