Two-times Olympic champion in weightlifting Ilya Ilyin from Kazakhstan has posted a prophetic photo on his Instagram account
It is a picture of Ilyin when he was a 10 y.o that was published on the front page of KazPravda
newspaper under a short title that turned out to be a prophecy.
“Aidarmax (PR Director of Samruk Kazyna Aidar Makhmetov) posted this photo on Instagram! I’m 10 y.o there and the photo was on the front page of KazPravda
with the title The Future World Champion lives in Kyzylorda
. The journalist who wrote the article must have been a time-traveler from the future,” Ilyin wrote under the post.
Makhmetov’s followers on Instagram believe that Yuri Bekker, a photo reporter, took the photo.
Indeed, it was a prophetic photo. Ilya Ilyin is the first ever two-times Olympic champion (Beijing-2008, London-2012), three-times World Champion (2005, 2006, 2011), two-times Asian Games champion (2006 and 2010) and the record-breaker in clean and jerk (233 kg and total 418 kg in weightlifting) in the 94 kg category.
