@shi_zhi_yong (73kg, China) clean and jerking 198kg/436.5lb to set a new World Record at the 2019 IWF World Cup in Tianjin! If/when he can make 200kg in the future, that would make him among the lightest lifters to ever make 200kg in int’l competition. As far as we know, should Shi do it, the only lighter lifter in the 200kg club to make it past doping would be Mikhail Petrov.
