8 Year Old Clean & Jerk

August 16 2010

With a population well over a billion people I know China has a much bigger gene pool to draw from but this is getting a bit ridiculous!

Have a look at this video that was posted up on CrossFit Vancouver the other day. It's of an 8 year old chinese boy doing a very solid 75 kg. clean and jerk. Yes, I said eight years old...  

I've been working on my clean and jerk for a few months now and I'm just starting to feel comfortable with the clean let alone the jerk. It blows me away when I see videos of young kids pulling off such complex lifts and moves, especially when it's with such a significant amount of weight! And it's also definitely a bit humbling knowing that I strive to have technique even close to this little powerhouse!
