In snatch lifting, Talakhadze overcame 208 kg in the first attempt, 215 kg in the second, and after the third attempt, 223 kg, which is both an Olympic and a world record, which belonged to Lasha (222).
As for clean and jerk - the Georgian athlete came out on the board quite late because he overcame much more than the competitors, 245 kg, and won the Olympic championship on the very first try.
