I’ve been looking for this for a while now…
169kg at 56kg bodyweight! Triple (+) Bodyweight at age 21!
Happened last month at the 2013 Asian Interclub Senior Weightlifting Championships Pyongyang, North Korea. And yes, this is an official world record. This was an IWF sanctioned meet.
Update: at the 2013 Worlds he went 124, 127, x130 in the Snatch and 162, x170 in the C&J.
On his 170kg attempt, he dislocated his elbow. Still he is 2013 World Champion.
- Here is the recording of the 56kg (Om vs. Long only)
- All other recordings will be linked on the 2013 Worlds Page
Update: On Eurosport David Goldstrom said it was a ligament tear.
Update 20.09.2014: He set a new World Record with 170kg at the 2014 Asian Games.
PS: Here is a clip from today’s (20.10.2013) worlds training hall with him in it.
