Nick Urankar Hits 315 Snatch, 395 Clean & Jerk. Is This the New Normal for Games Athletes?

The CrossFit Liftoff is currently underway, which means new personal records are stacking up for functional fitness enthusiasts across the globe. More women than ever are snatching above 200 pounds, and a seemingly countless stream of males are crossing the 300 pound barrier on their snatches as well.

Two lifts that caught our eye came from multi-time CrossFit Games competitor Nick Urankar. While he just missed out on qualifying for the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games, Urankar is obviously still training hard and staying competitive. Though Urankar is known for his strength, in recent years, it seemed like a lot of other well-rounded athletes were catching up to him in terms of top weightlifting numbers.

Urankar’s 315 snatch and 395 pound clean & jerk suggest he’s still among the upper echelon of strong fitness athletes. Check out the lifts below, both new PRs for the 32 year old.
