That 424kg total was also a big int’l competition PR so his numbers are increasing quickly. If he can up his snatch a bit he might even be an overall medal threat on the world stage in the near future!

Meng Suping(+75kg, China) Squats 200kg for a double.
Meng Suping (75kg+, China) front squatting 200kg/441lb for a double at the 2015 Asian Championships training hall. She did this after three doubles at 195kg/430lb and one single at 200kg.

Su Dajin(77kg, China) Squatting 280kg. (after he squatted 260kg for a double btw)
Su Dajin (-77kg, China) in the 2015 Asian Championships training hall back squatting 280kg/617lb followed by a graceful dismount of a 170kg jerk dip (he loaded it back up and did a much heavier weight afterwards). Back at the 2011 WWC, where he placed 3rd, he made a 211kg/465lb clean which is 1kg over the world record in the clean and jerk in his category.
