Ilya Ilyin with Dallas and Ma

In this very special edition of the Weightlifting World Podcast we are honoured and humbled to be joined in person by double Olympic champion, World champion at 3 different weight classes and possibly the greatest weightlifter of all time, Ilya Ilyin. Ilya gives us his first ever interview in English and discusses how he started in weightlifting, his early approach to training, his current system, how he approaches the sport psychologically, that battle with Nurudinov and Bedzanyan at 2014 World’s, his plans for the future and much much more over 36 glorious minutes!
