Champions And Records, 62KG Men


Second day of competitions for class A athletes in Houston, TX brought another set of world records. In the men’s 62KG weightclass, Lijun Chen broke world records in clean-and-jerk and total.

New featherweight champion from China cj’d 183KG and had a total of 333KG.

The record in clean-and-jerk previously was set by Maosheng Le in 2002, when Lijun Chen was only 9. It was beautiful and memorable when Lijun Chen held the new record weight of 183KG above his head in his last attempt at the 2015 World Championship in Houston, TX>

Oh well, records are always set to be broken and to bring more excitement for the fans of the “iron game”!
