Biography

LÜ Xiaojun

At London 2012, 28-year-old Lü Xiaojun provided one early highpoint for weightlifting superpower China in the men’s 77kg category.

Having already been assured of gold, he claimed a world-record total of 379kg when he lifted an impressive 204kg in the clean and jerk after an initial 195kg lift.

Lü marked his achievement, one of 44 world and Olympic weightlifting records broken at the ExCel arena during the Games, by abandoning protocol to lift his coach off the ground – leaving him covered in chalky handprints – before running around the stage in ecstatic celebration.

It was an unusual display of exuberance in the competition but one that reflected both his incredible feat and the importance of the sport in his country – which had missed out on taking gold in the 77kg in its home Games four years earlier.

Lü went on to win silver at Rio 2016, but at the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in 2021, the first with new weight categories, Lü dominated the new 81 kg competition to set the first Olympic records in snatch, clean & jerk, and total lift in the new class.

Having turned 37 just four days prior to the competition, he added to his five overall world titles in emphatic fashion, lifting a total of 374 kg to clinch gold.

Rio Olympics 2016: Kazakhstan's Nijat Rahimov wins men's -77kg final as records fall

Kazakhstan's Nijat Rahimov lifted a clean and jerk world record to win Olympic men's -77kg weightlifting gold in Rio.

Rahimov's final lift of 214kg gave him a total of 379kg, breaking the 15-year-old clean and jerk record of 210kg.

China's Lyu Xiaojun, who set a world record of 177kg in the snatch, also lifted a total of 379kg but took silver because he is heavier than Rahimov.

Egypt's Mohamed Mahmoud won bronze with a combined 361kg.

The event was overshadowed by an elbow injury to Armenia's Andranik Karapetyan, who had been in medal contention before suffering the problem as he attempted a clean and jerk lift of 195kg.

Weightlifting-China's veteran Lyu wins gold in men's 81kg

TOKYO, July 31 (Reuters) - China's Lyu Xiaojun became the oldest man to win an Olympic gold medal in weightlifting when he claimed the 81kg title on Saturday although he failed to break his own world record.

The 37-year-old lifted a combined 374kg, falling short of the 378kg he set to win gold at the 2019 world championships in Pattaya, Thailand, but did set an Olympic record for all three categories of snatch, clean & jerk and thus also the total.

Lyu, who won gold in the men's 77kg category at the 2012 London Games and silver in the same class at Rio 2016.

Immediately after the competition, Lyu showed another side of his life, trying to call his father as he waited for an interview, while regretting that he was not able to take care of his children while he focused on training.

"I only thought about my two daughters. In the past five years I was not able to take care of them as I was in Beijing for training," Lyu said, holding the medal hanging from his neck. "I felt sorry for not looking after them."

Whether he will continue his career is now in focus. "If you see me next year, you will see me in Paris," he said.

ROUGH START

Lyu had a rough start, with a surprise failure at 165kg in his first snatch attempt.

"I was too relaxed. The weight was too light," Lyu said jokingly about the failure.

But he turned aggressive toward the end, trying to lift 210 kg in his third clean and jerk to break his own world record. But he failed.

Still he had a comfortable 7kg lead over the silver medallist, Dominican Republic's Zacarias Bonnat Michel, who lifted 367kg in total.

Italy's Antonino Pizzolato won the bronze with a 365kg total after only two successful lifts out of the six attempts.

"I was disappointed but that feeling was replaced with joy immediately after winning a medal," said Pizzolato.

Qatar's Fares Ibrahim Elbakh won a gold medal in the men's 96kg and set an Olympic record with a combined lift of 402kg.

Elbakh failed with his attempt to lift 232kg in the clean & jerk in a bid to break the world record.

Venezuela's Keydomar Vallenilla Sanchez won silver and Georgia's Anton Pliesnoi claimed bronze.

List of world records in Olympic weightlifting

Wikipedia list article

This is a list of world records in Olympic weightlifting. These records are maintained in each weight class for the snatch lift, clean and jerk lift, and the total for both lifts.

The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) restructured its weight classes in 1993, 1998 and 2018, nullifying earlier records.

Current records[edit]

When the previous records and weight classes were discarded, the IWF defined "world standards" as the minimum lifts needed to qualify as world records in the new weight classes. Wherever World Standard appears in the list below, no qualified weightlifter has yet lifted these weights in a sanctioned competition.

Weightlifting-China's Shi breaks world record to win gold in 73kg category

TOKYO, July 28 (Reuters) - China's Shi Zhiyong broke his own world record to win the men's 73kg weightlifting event at the Olympics on Wednesday and claim a gold medal for the second Games in a row.

The 27-year-old lifted a combined 364 kg to better his own world record of 363 kg, set at the 2019 world championships.

Venezuela's Julio Ruben Mayora Pernia won a silver with a lift of 346 kg.

In a surprise turn, Indonesia's Rahmat Erwin Abdullah, who competed in a division with lower weight entries, won a bronze by lifting 342 kg in total. read more

Shi remained strong throughout the competition, breaking the Olympic record in the snatch with his second lift and again with his third.

"My aim was to break the world record, not only to win the gold medal," Shi told reporters.

"I would have regretted not breaking the world record. I came here to do this, I waited five years to do this. I was sure I would break my own record."

Shi, gold medallist at the 2016 Olympics in the 69 kg category, also broke the Olympic record for the clean and jerk on his first attempt.

Shi challenged the decision on his second attempt at a 192 kg clean and jerk, but the decision stood. He then lifted 198 kg on his third lift to match his world record.

Mayora Pernia tried to lift 199 kg on his third clean and jerk but failed.

Indonesia's Abdullah said his father and coach recommended him to compete at the lower weight division because he would be "more comfortable and relaxed" that way.

"I am so happy, the plan worked," he said, adding that his father was not able to compete at the Olympics in 2004 due to injuries.

"Today I've won the medal for both of us, I dedicate this to him."
