Men's 77kg epic battle
 
Everyone who hasn't yet seen the Men's 77kg should see it ASAP. This was the epic battle of the games so far, with an absolutely thrilling finish.

Sa is bad dude.

However, 85kg is more dramatic IMO. Especially after the elbow lockout controversey with the Chinese lifter in the C & J. Kendrick Farris finished 8th with a total of 362kg. his C&J is up there with the big boys, but his snatch is way behind. Good effort though!

actually, more than a good effort. i think he set the new American record.
