Posted on Thursday, May 5th, 2022 by John Wood
Pavel Mitrofanovich Chechin, lifting with the famed Lokomotiv Sport club, was the light-heavyweight (82.5 kg) class weightlifting champion of the USSR in 1937 with a 357.5 kg. total (107.5+102.5+147.5). Born in the city of what was then-known as Dnepropetrovsk, Chechin never set any World records, but did set 16 Ukranian records during his lifting career. Here he does a 1-arm jerk with a pair of heavy kettlebells.
