Jang Yeon-hak lifted 182kg in snatch, 217kg in clean and jerk, and 399kg in total in the men's 102kg class competition at the 2023 World Weightlifting Championships held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on the 14th (local time).


Jang Yeon-hak, who took third place in the snatch and clean and jerk, took second place in the all-important total.


At the Olympics and Asian Games, medals are awarded based solely on total records, but at the World Championships, medals are awarded for both snatch, clean and jerk, and total records.


Jang Yeon-hak won one silver medal and two bronze medals.


Jang Yeon-hak, who received only disappointing results at the World Championships, including 10th place in 2018, 9th place in 2019, and disqualification in 2021 and 2022, shook off the bad luck in Riyadh.


Jang Yeon-hak, the silver medalist in the men's 85kg class at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, will attempt to win a medal for the second time in a row at the Hangzhou Asian Games, which opens on September 23.


At the Hangzhou Asian Games, the 102kg class is not an official event, so Jang Yeon-hak will compete in the 109kg class.


Yauheny Tsikhantsov (25), who took first place in the snatch with 183 kg, stayed in 9th place in the clean and jerk with 211 kg, and Jang Yeon-hak, who took 3rd place in both the snatch and clean and jerk, beat Chakantsov (394 kg) in the total.


Chikantsov, a Belarusian national, participated in this competition as an ‘individual qualified athlete’ (AIN).


The International Weightlifting Federation conditionally approved athletes from Russia, which invaded Ukraine, and Belarus, a partner nation, to participate in the world championships, classifying them as 'AIN' status, which does not allow them to use their country's flag and national anthem.


Russia protested against this and did not participate in this tournament, and Belarus sent out 10 players.


In this weight class, Ryu Hwan-hwa (22, China) won with a total weight of 404 kg.


Ryu Hwan-hwa only placed 4th in the snatch with 180kg, but she made a comeback by succeeding in the clean and jerk with 224kg.


Kim Soo-hyun (28, Busan City Sports Council) ranked second in snatch in the women's 76kg class, but missed the medal by 1kg in total.


Kim Soo-hyun succeeded in snatching 106kg and took second place after Sarah Ahmed (25, Egypt), who lifted 109kg.


However, she fell to fourth place in the clean and jerk, where she only weighed 133 kg, and also placed fourth in the total (239 kg).


Bella Paredes (21, Ecuador), who won the bronze medal in her total, recorded a record of 240 kg (105 kg in snatch and 135 kg in clean and jerk), 1 kg higher than Kim Soo-hyun's.


Ahmed took first place in the clean and jerk with 138kg and swept three gold medals in total (246kg), and Helen Escobar (24, Ecuador) took second place with a total of 242kg.


Kim Soo-hyun, who finished the World Championships with her regrets, is working hard again to win the Hangzhou Asian Games.
