He pulls it high - a power clean. He did this with his lifts in Beijing. Crazy power. Yet never a gold.

Chigishev makes me wish there was a 125kg or 120kg class in Oly lifting. It seems unfair that guys like him and Jabar Salam (who is under 120, I think) have to compete against mammoths like Reza and Chemerkin. I guess there isn't a whole lot of difference in the weights lifted, it just seems kind of tough on the guys. Personally, I weigh around 100kg and could probably stand to add another 10-15kg and still carry it well on my frame, but I'm scared of competing against the supers - I get my butt kicked as it is, no need to move up a class.

I heard this a lot during the Olympics. Suck it up, there's always tweeners in any weight-classed sport. There's a reason the cruiserweights in boxing are generally forgotten and that's what a 125 class would be.
Pisarenko did 265 at around Chigishev's weight. Chigishev is a big boy, he should play with the big boys.
Also, what makes you think Chigishev would want to compete for any other title than heavyweight? Being the heavyweight means lifting last and that you're effing stronger than everyone, period.
