Chinese domination on Asian weightlifting championship

We could watch Asian weightlifting Championship in Tashkent in last week. It was something like preliminary Olympic Games because of results. We watched athletes performed on the highest level when they set new world records and some weight categories were really interesting. The most successful country was China with 10 gold medals in total (5 mens category and 5 in womens category). I will try to summarize best results in this article.

 

Women's category + 87 kg 2021 / Tashkent

It was pure a domination from Li Wenwen from China in category + 87 kg, when she hit 148 kg in snatch and 187 kg in clean and jerk. Both numbers are new world records and together made new world record in total as well (335 kg). Difference between her and second competitor was stunning 56 kg. Li is only 21 years old, so we can expect from her even better numbers in the future. SON Younghee (South Korea) was second with 120 kg snatch and 159 kg clean and jerk (279 kg).


Women's category 76 kg 2021 / Tashkent

Another amazing performance was in the category under 76 kg, when Zhang Wangli from China lifted 115 kg in snatch and 148 kg in clean and jerk and her total was 263 kg. She had 19 kg lead over second KIM Suhyeon (South Korea) with total 244 kg (106 kg snatch and 138 kg clean and jerk)


Women's category 59 kg 2021 / Tashkent

Great show was in category under 59 kg. Kuo Hsing-Chun (Taiwan) won gold medal with 110 kg snatch and 137 kg in clean and jerk. Her total was 247 kg. We could see nice numbers from competitors behind her as well. LUO Xiaomin (China) did 102 kg snatch and 125 kg clean and jerk (227 kg total). Bronze medal went to Vieatnamese Hoang Thi Duyen, who lifted 100 kg in snatch and 116 kg in clean and jerk.

 

Category men 109 kg 2021 / Tashkent

109 tashkent

We witnessed some world records in mens categories as well. Really special was category under 109 kg, where Yang Zhe from China set a new world record in snatch for 200 kg. Second place in snatch took Akbar Djuraev (Uzbekistan). He had really nice last attempt on 197 kg, but unfortunately unsuccessful because of his elbows and judges gave him no lift. Bronze medal in snatch went to legendary Ruslan Nurudinov from Uzbekistan, who lifted 188 kg. Upcoming clean and jerk session was even more interesting. Akbar Djuraev lifted 234 kg and Ruslan Nurudinov had last attempt. He had to go for 241 kg if he want to became Asian champion. This weight will be new world record in U 109 category as well. Nurudinov lifted this weight and total 429 kg gave him gold medal ahead of Djuraev with 428 kg and third Yang with 415 kg.
This category will be really interesting on the upcoming Olympic Games, where we will see fight probably between Nurudinov and Martirosyan from Armenia.

Category men 81kg 2021 / Tashkent

Li Dayin x Lu Xiaojun Asian Tashkent

Another show of world records was in snatch in category under 81 kg. We do not have to introduce legendary Lu Xiaojun from China. He set a new world record with third attempt when he lifted 174 kg, which meant deletion of old one from Mohammed Ehab from Egypt. Anyway straight after Lu’s attempt went for his last attempt Li Dayin from China and lifted 175 kg, which was another new world record in snatch in this category. Xiaojun won in clean and jerk with 199 kg and his total was 373 kg. Unfortunately, Li Dayin was not able to lift even his opening attempt and because of that was not qualified in this competition and won’t have needed points for Olympic qualification. TOSHTEMIROV Mukhammadkodir was second with 353 kg total (160 kg snatch and 193 kg clean and jerk), third was Rejepov Rejhepbay with total 341 kg.

Category men 73 kg 2021 / Tashkent

We expected a lot from SHI Zhiyong and he showed us his qualities once again. He set a new world record in snatch with 169 kg and together with 194 in clean and jerk set a new world record in total as well. His total was 363 kg. Silver medal went to Turkmenistan when Maksad Meredov lifted 336 kg in total and Bronze to Japanese Masanori Miyamoto with 335 kg total.

We are really looking forward to the upcoming Olympic Games and believe, that you like this article.
