Meanwhile in Korea … at the 2014 Asian Games.
Zhou Lulu, who already showed that she was in top form at the Chinese test event 2 months ago, just broke Tatiana Kashirina’s +75kg Clean & Jerk World Record (190kg).
She weighed in at 140.35kg set the new World Record at 192kg.
Her Lifts: 135, 142, x147 in the Snatch and 175, 183, 192 in the Clean & Jerk
This 334kg Total also tied Tatiana Kashirina’s World Record Total.
By the way, I think this was the 9nth WR in the Asian Games (counting the Jr WRs).
After the competition she said:
Nothing special about it
I don’t feel like I performed well in the snatch,” she added of her lift which set a new Asian Games record.
Honorable Mention: Kazakhstan’s Mariya Grabovetskaya snatching 141kg at 117.33kg bodyyweight. There are now 4 ladies that Snatch 140+.
Wow, if she got that 147 snatch, she would have broken the WR by 5kg and pulled a Kim UnGuk LOL
How much longer until the female super heavyweights have to stop using the Women’s bar?
Quite a while still, got space for at least up to 220 (-bar)
But this is insane though, can’t wait for the Worlds (she and Tatiana should both be there right?)
But that whip. Doesn’t it put unnecessary pressure on the wrists before the jerk?
She’s absolutely amazing! Sharp and strong.Her fitness is also incredible: following herself three times and capable doing something like this…insane.
Zhou Lulu – BEST Super-Lifter and Future Olympic Champion in RIO-2016 !!! Her Best Snatch (in Training) = 147 kg & Clean and Jerk (in Training) = 200+ (and above)
Gaining 7kg has clearly helped her C&J.
ps: Jang Mi Ran also snatched 140. 😛
