Clean and Jerk, & Snatch

Men Twice as Strong as Women, on Average

There are no men weightlifters in the 105 pound weight class which female weight lifter Li Ping is in. The closest is 125 pounds, and the record for men in that weight class is 304 pounds--one third more than the 227 pounds that Li Ping snatched

There are numerous male weightlifters who have snatched more than 440 pounds, but the world record holder for women weight lifters is Li Ping who snatched 103 kilograms and clean and jerked 134 kilograms, 227 and 295 pounds, respectively.  Conversely, America's "strongest [but actually FATTEST] woman" (the three hundred pounder pictured above) snatched a mere 259 pounds, not even close to a world record for women, and about HALF of what numerous male weight lifters routinely snatch. Way back in 1987, Antonio Krastev of Bulgaria snatched 476 pounds, ahead of woman record holder Li Ping by MORE THAN TWICE.

123 pound (and 5' tall) Yun Chol OM of North Korea clean and jerked 370 pounds, three times his body weight, and 67 pounds more than FAT Haworth's 303 pound clean and jerk.

This is a great metaphor for the feminazi claim that the "gender gap is narrowing": even three decades after Antonio did this, the world's strongest woman isn't even halfway there, AND women are not "catching up to men" in any weight class, in any human endeavor, nor on any corner of the earth.

The AVERAGE 18 year old American boy with less than two weeks training can snatch TWICE as much as that.

The puniest male weightlifter in the world snatched 10% more than "the strongest American woman", Cheryl Haworth did.

The false notion that she is probably stronger than the poster on Huffingtonpost only if they are female. If they are male, even the shortest guy in town can snatch much more than Haworth [unless they are from India who has never won an Olympic medal in weightlifting in spite of being almost one billion people].

"The current U.S record for the snatch at the smallest weight class is 233lbs. Next weight class up has a record of 264lbs. What you're saying is that after 2 weeks of training, the average 18 year old is 28 pounds off the Olympic record. Looks like you're working out with the next generation of U.S Olympic lifters. Congrats.

Also, I doubt 'puniest man in the world" is an accurate title for a man that has the Olympic record for the snatch, which is 302lbs.' "

You're not reading this right.

The average American man weighs 191 pounds, or 87 kg. The record for snatch in this weight group is 412 pounds, not 302 pounds as you insinuate. It would not be difficult to imagine that the AVERAGE 18 year old would be able to snatch 73% of the record for his weight group, or 302 pounds, with only a few weeks of training, would it? However, as you might imagine, those who go to gyms are well above the average weight, perhaps as much as 231 pounds, where the record for snatch is 472 pounds.

How hard do you think it would be to reach two thirds of that world record, or 302 pounds? Wouldn't "puny" be an accurate description for the relatively few males (and 100% of the females) who CANNOT?

FAT (and amazingly UNHEALTHY looking) Cheryl Haworth

WEIGHTS RISE, RECORDS FALL

In the 75-plus kilogram weight class, Cheryl Haworth holds every U.S. women's record. Can world records be far behind? Compare her U.S. records to the world records:

Snatch: 117.5 kg

Set: Pan Am Games, Aug. 7, Winnipeg, Canada

World: 122.5 kg, Agata Wrobel, Poland

Clean and jerk: 137.5 kg

Set: World Junior Championships, July 8, Savannah, Ga.

World: 156 kg, Meiyuan Ding, China

Two-lift total: 252.5 kg

Set: Pan Am Games, Aug. 7, Winnipeg, Canada

World: 275 kg, Meiyuan Ding, China

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_world_records_in_Olympic_weightlifting

The heaviest women, who weighed more than 75 kilograms, didn't clean and jerk much more than the lightest men, 56 kilograms (190 vs. 169 kg). The lightest women at 48 kg lifted 121 kg compared to the lightest men 56 kg who lifted 169 kg, or 40% more. The strongest man weighed more than 105 kg and lifted 263 kg compared to the strongest women who weighed more than 75 kg and lifted 190 kg.  The strongest man lifted 263 kg, which is 38% more than the strongest woman at 190 kg, and 2.2 TIMES more than a woman weight lifter who "won" [READ: was given carte blanche] a world record in the 48 kg weight class, who lifted only 121 kg.

the peanut gallery
"1) Yes I REALLY believe that
2) There are weight classes in Olympic weighlifting. Li Ping only weighs about 105lbs
3) Hayworth snatched 275lbs
4) She also clean and jerked 319lbs "

I belong to several gyms, or "health clubs", and don't know a single 18 year old male who cannot snatch at least 275 pounds with a most 2 weeks of training.

You are correct about the weight classes: there are no men in the 105 pound weight class which Li Ping is in. The closest is 125 pounds, and the record for men in that weight class is 304 pounds, which is ONE THIRD more than the 227 pounds that Li Ping snatched.

So the puniest man in the world snatched 10% more weight than "the strongest American woman", Haworth..  Y
our statement that she is probably stronger than the poster on hp has a 99% probability of being wrong.

In the Olympics contests in Australia, the strongest weightlifters of each sex were the ones who were in the largest weight class, but even the many women who weighed more than men didn't jerk or snatch more weight than men.  In fact, the average body weight of strongest women was between 77 to 79 kilograms, but they snatched only 100 kilograms, whereas the weakest men snatched 130 kilograms--30% more than the strongest women.  In other words, all of the men snatched at least 30% more than the strongest women, and the strongest women were the ones who weighed half as much as the heaviest women.
