Kendrick Farris Makes Third US Olympic Team!

This 209kg C&J by Kendrick Farris gave him a new American record in the total for the 94kg class and anchored his position on his third U. S. Olympic Team.

The lift runs in both regular and in slow motion. Drag the playhead in order to stop, slow down, or reverse the clip.

Note Kendrick’s slight jump rearward in the clean, the asymmetrical foot placement in the squat jerk, and the shaky (but not bending and extending) elbows.

Kendrick holds the American record in this lift at 211kg.
