The Perfect Olympic Lift: Klokov

The science and technique of Olympic Lifts captured in ONE photograph
This is the perfect pic to describe an olympic lift...

because you can see that when he catches the snatch, the bar is in the same position as it was in.
That is because the barbell does not deviate from either - path of movement or pointof ascent. IT IS BANG ON PERFECT. It is only the lifter that moves. This is the perfection of an olympic lift.
any olympic lift rightly done will follow these principles. in a squat, the bar will move in ONE SINGLE LINE. in a snatch too. in a clean and jerk too.
So this pic is the epitome of that.
AND of course, its klokovv! 

PS: my respect to the photographer who captured this for HookGrip.
