Meanwhile in Korea … at the 2014 Asian Games.
Another day another world record.
Today it was the Nadezhda Evstyukhina’s 163kg that fell victim to the North Korean Super Powers.
Unju Kim (NK) Clean & Jerked 164kg at 75kg Bodyweight!
Her lifts were: 120 125 128 in the Snatch and 156, 163, 164 in the C&J (Full Results)
I bet she too received “the warm care and great love of Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un has given me the opportunity to be the champion.” (via).
PS: Does the Marshal ship his Warm Care™ to Europe? I’d buy a bottle or two, because you know… Warm Care™ is the Best Care!
Yue Kang Snatched 131kg again and went 153, 160, x164 in the C&J
these girls put me in a big big shame.
Female weightlifting starts to make me more interested than the male. The evolution they have gone through the last 20 years is absolutely mind blowing! Looking back in the 80’s and 90’s women were ridiculous. Always screaming,crying,going mad in the same time. Good technique practically didn’t exist excluding a very few special cases. Today women are beautiful,strong,high quality lifters who fight for the very last moment. I just love watching them.
Kim Un Ju (DPRK) – 75 kg ; Rim Jong Sim (DPRK) – 69 kg ; Ri Jong Hwa (DPRK) – 58 kg – THIS is the FUTURE of OLYMPIC Champion RIO-2016. GOOD LUCK and VICTORY to THEM in Brazil !!!!!!!!!!! From Russia with LOVE !!!!!!
Lots of water will flow down on the Danube until 2016 as they say in Hungary….so we will see. But they are outstanding for sure.
Aaanad 2 of them are already banned…
Warm Care™ is actually manufactured in Europe via Sanofi, Roche, etc… and you can buy as many bottles as you want. Just don’t take too much of it near competition.

This is probably the most prolific competition ever. It’s crazy to think that the WR rate is at 17%, with Lulu and Salimi yet to come…lol.
Un Ju’s transition into the Jerk looks a little bit like Om Yum Chol’s. The Russians and Podobedova have a battle in their hands!
She’s kinda cute.
