According to Eleiko’s notes the correct number of world records set with an Eleiko barbell is 999. The 1000th record was set! HRISTOV Valentin from Azerbaijan competing in the 56kg bodyweight category broke the Youth World Record in the Clean & Jerk with 154 kg at the World Championships in Paris. The Chinese missed the chance as they did not know about this special award.
To remember to this historical moment and honour the lifter, he will receive “The Eleiko 1000th World Record Award” which consists of a complete Eleiko barbell set, worth 3300 EUR. Congratulations!
When he was asked what he will do with the barbells he received as his gift from Eleiko, Valentin said he will keep the barbells and it will decorate his home.
