  1. У меня вопрос на Олимпиаде в Сиднее его сумма равна (212+260=472)(WR),а на Олимпиаде в Афинах он поднял (210+263,5=473,5)(WR), но рекордом стоял 472 , а не 473,5???

  2. This area (The Caucasians , Iranians and Pakistanis) have produced the best Weighlifters in the world , The person who came closer to Rezazadeh was the Pakistani Weighlifter Shuja ud din Malik who lifted 195kg in Jerk and Clean at Commonwealth Games in 2006 which is Game Record till now

  3. آذری یعنی غیرت وتعصب
    حسین رضازاده مردی که تکرارنخواهدشد
    البته ماامیدواریم تکراروتکراربشه
    آقای رضازاده ازدورمیبوسمت زنده باشی یل دلاور
    درودبه همه آذری های متعصبمون
    پاینده ایران عزیز

  4. Please excuse my ignorance about weightlifting, but… Why is this athlete so fat? Is that extra weight necessary for a weightlifter? From my point of view, that is a contradiction in terms of fitness and health. He is seriously overweight.
