Zulfiya Chinshanlo had an outstanding performance at the 2014 World Weightlifting Championship, setting two world records in the Clean and Jerk.
After her 127kg opener, which secured her gold in the total, the 21 year old lifted 133kg for a new World Record on her second attempt. However that wasn’t enough. After all, how often do you get to set WRs in your home country? So she followed is up with 134kg on her third attempt.
This was her third time breaking the record within a 6 week period (132kg @ 2014 Asian Games)

Update 31.12.2014: Here is her 133kg Clean & Jerk World Record.
Update: Here are her snatches
This was the first really enjoyable competition for me. Zulfiya was just outstanding! First that snatch she nailed after having been injured and being in a hurry. Of course the two c&j world records didn’t hurt either 🙂 That is what I love about female weightlifting. You can see new things all the time. We can’t really get that with men because there aren’t many things that didn’t happen in the past already. But women are absolutely awesome!!!
So awesome to hear the home country cheering her. I bet she was ecstatic!
Which home country? LOLOL
according to wikipedia she was born in kasachstan, went to china and came back later on. anyway china thought she was not good enough, let her go to kasachstan and they made her the lifter she is today. ask her what´s her home country and she will reply kasachstan.
Really? I just read up yesterday and it seems she was born in Hunan, China and along with Maya Maneza, she was sent to Kazakhstan for an exchange program. She speaks Chinese fluently but barely any Russian or Kazakh. When interviewed in Kazakhstan, she denied that she was Chinese, but if she doesn’t speak the local language, who answered for her? In any case, I think it would be insane for China to claim her if there wasn’t truth to it, but regardless, those medals indisputably belong to Kazakhstan no matter what the true story is.
actually, i checked the german wikipedia and the article starts slightly different than the one on the english site, which i assume is the one you have read. anyway, there are quiete some contradictions inside the articles itselves and it is obvious that the author of both does not know the truth him-or herself. we will most likely never find out so i will leave it with that and just enjoy her lifting.

Awesome lifts, with the 134 looking way easier than 133. A shame about Hsu-Shu Ching losing all her form, but Chinshanlo certainly made for it.
