Meanwhile in Russia at the 2014 Junior Worlds …
Here is what you missed not watching the Jr Worlds.
20 year old Kim Tuan Thach from Vietnam set a new 56kg Junior World Record in the Snatch and Total.
He got 133kg on his second attempt (after opening with 120). He went for 135kg on his third but lost it behind.
The old junior record was held by Long Quingquan with 132kg at the 2008 Olympic Games.
I hope Hookgrip got a video of that. I only recorded a gif.
Update: 160kg Clean & Jerk [gif] also gets him the Junior Total World Record. His 293kg equals the winning total of Om Yun Chol at the 2012 Olympics.
Update: HookGrip’s Slow Motion Video
Here is an overlay of his 133kg and 135kg attempt.
Update: At the 2014 Asian Games he Snatched 134kg for first place.
