1. KLOKOV’S THRUSTER LADDER FROM THE GRID
National Pro Grid League was established in 2014 by Tony Budding. The large team format allows athletes who are specialized in one field get their chance, which means World Champions in Olympic Weightlifting will be an extremely desired addition to the teams. A few years back Dmitry Klokov stole the show in the thruster ladder event with a 175 kg lift. For 2015 he signed with Baltimore Anthem and will be a regular player on the GRID in the upcoming season.
