That is an entirely gender-slash-sexual-orientation-dependent statement. Though I do aspire to one day be lean and awesome at 105 like the roaring Russian . . .


Perhaps...or perhaps pretty is pretty lol

This is turning into SAMA for olympic lifters haha.

I also find it interesting how in most discussions about attractive female weightlifters that video/picture of Marilou Dozois-Prevost from Beijing tends to come up sooner or later.


lol yeah

Svetlana is a world champ, Marilou is very good but she will likely barely make an Olympic slot, and only because she dropped down to the 48s. If I had magic powers and could choose I'd take Svetlana's look and medals =D


Well, "barely" . . . I think she'll take the 3rd spot pretty handily down at 48, it's just that the two girls ahead of her are absolute freaks. Christine Girard is consistently totalling in the mid to high 230s as a 63 (clean and jerked a Canadian record 134 recently if I'm not mistaken) and Marie-Eve Beauchemin-Nadeau recently totalled 240 as a 69 (with a Canadian record snatch of 106). Hard to compete with people lifting over 100% of the defined world standards.


Incredible that she could drop down to 48 and still make the same lifts. Canadian women are awesome :) I'd look like Rosie O'Donnell to lift like any of them!


Well, her numbers have come down (she did 195 as a 53 last year, and recently 178 as a 48) she just matches up better across the weight classes as a 48.

Klokov and Oleg Chen are tied for me, even though they look nothing alike.

she is. i do get a cringe feeling that her twiggy limbs will break... but she does seem to have a very sweet personality and she gets some beautiful lifts. if her femurs can do it, mine should be able to do a hell of a lot better than they are doing now... even though she is a shortie...

Just watched this with my little brother. Everytime she got excited after a lift, hopping around and clapping her hands, he was like, "Well, there's the estrogen."

She really is a helluva lifter. I think there's other canuck lifters who have her beat on the cuteness factor though, personally.

Or when Tatian Kashirina would be lifting, and you'd watch her lift this insane weight, then you look closer and "Is that . . . is that a flower in her hair???"

Keeping the thread alive. My favourite 75kg female lifter, will be rooting for her in London.



Yeah, she's jacked as all hell, but I like her.
