Martirosyan hit a 191kg/420lb snatch and a 235kg/517lb clean and jerk for a 426kg total, a 12kg improvement over his performance at 2017 European Championships while about 8kg heavier.
Even more impressively, he came unbelievably close to breaking the Junior World Record, barely missing a 246kg clean and jerk. Check out this beautiful video of all three of Martirosyan's clean & jerks taken by All Things Gym:
Martirosyan took silver at the 2016 Olympics behind Ruslan Nurudinov and clearly has his mind on winning more gold medals.
