  1. Bogdanovski missed that snatch because his grip was uneven by a good four or five inches on the right side. I don't know what he was thinking but his diving style did not work. Kono's pressing style is impressive, as a light heavy 3 years later in Moscow he pressed 347 in the same manner. He had the cleanest and most strict press of all.
