2015 World Championship: Men, 69KG


Team China won another gold medal at the 2015 IWF World Championship in Houston, TX.

22-year-old Zhiyong Shi lifted 348kg total (158+190) and became a World Champion for the first time in his career. He secured a gold medal with his squat style jerk lifts. This style was proven to be successful for many Chinese champions in the last two decades.

Oleg Chen, Russia, won a silver medal and Daniyar Ismayilov won a bronze medal for Turkey.

Team Russia has been skipping the 69KG class representation in most of the recent elite tournaments. The usual choice was to boost heavier classes (77KG+) where Russia has more athletes capable of medal-winning performance. Silver medal by Oleg Chen is definitely a successful result in the light of the team strategy for Russia.

Daniyar Ismayilov won gold in the snatch lift. He won a gold medal at the  2015 European Championship in Georgia. His improved his result in Houston by 6KG and it brought him a bronze medal at the Worlds.
