Olympian Oleksiy Torokhtiy Returns to Form with Spectacular 160 kg Snatch

Ukrainian Oleksiy Torokhtiy, the renowned weightlifting blogger, coach and Olympian (2008/2012), has taken to social media to share some heavy lifts in his weightlifting journey.

A recent training session at the Halterofilia Barcelona gym witnessed Torokhtiy executing a snatch of 150 kg effortlessly, followed by a 160 kg conquest on his second attempt.

This achievement marks Torokhtiy’s personal record for the snatch in the last seven years. The significance of this accomplishment is underscored by his self-professed “PR vacation”. Yet, the recent video reel demonstrates that Oleksiy has lost none of his renowned speed and mobility, showcasing the impeccable technical form.

As Oleksiy Torokhtiy continues to push the boundaries of his capabilities, he serves as an inspiration to amateur and pro weightlifters worldwide. His presence in the weightlifting community, both as a lifter and a coach, continues to be a powerful force in this sport.
