Wes Barnett hit a PR 177.5 kg snatch in training last Friday, as the U.S. team enters the final weeks of training before the World Weightlifting Championships. Tom Gough, just to show that becoming a father last week wouldn't break his concentration, did 160/200 in training this morning. Shane Hamman, who snatched 180 for a double a couple of weeks ago, is starting to move up in his clean and jerks, and did a very easy 210 a couple days ago.
