Re(1): What happened with Blaine Sumner bombing? He get hurt before deadlifts? Posted on 7/28/2017 at 08:33:31 PM by Reported 1st hand from the meet
He was dooped into bad attempt selection by a competitors false deadlift opener being listed as artificially high. They dropped the opener number before the deadline to change numbers (5min before the flight?) and he and his coach didn't catch it.
That makes the second time he was outsmarted on the international stage in the last 3 years when you add in Konovolov (sp?) calling his bluff on a 3rd attempt pull for the win. Standard weightlifting strategies. Replies:
