Here is a 211kg Clean & Jerk by Sa Jae-Hyouk (77kg).
211 at 77 should ring a bell. It’s 1kg more than the current world record.
He did this back at the 2010 South Korean Nationals and wikipedia says it is the current South Korean national record.
Thanks to BP for sending this in.
More 211kg Clean & Jerks by 77kg lifters (training bodyweight > 77kg):
Hmmm in my opinion the lockout was not legit. He did a slight rebend with the elbows. But nontheless great lift!
He gets pretty close to 212kg here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8TB5JxOjoc
So close! But the call was right.
Wiki also claims the SK snatch record is 140 kg for 56kg weight division. Should we believe everything on web?
Michael Wu says
maybe at “56kg” body weight. south korea has had no notable 56kg lifter on the world stage as far as I know…
Lee Jong Hoon 56kg: 125/155 from 2005 nr2 at world’s. Lost the gold with 1 kg.
