Weightlifter Ri Seong-geum in the Women's 49kg Class Wins Gold

[Asian Games] North Korean Weightlifter Ri Seong-geum in the Women's 49kg Class Wins Gold, Setting a New World Record

Won the 2022 World Championships by defeating champion Zhang Huihua.

North Korean weightlifters' return to international competitions after four years was decorated with 'golden glory with a new world record'.

Lee Seong-geum (25, North Korea) lifted 92 kg in snatch, 124 kg in clean and jerk, and 216 kg in total at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games weightlifting women's 49 kg group A competition held at Xiaoshan Sports Center in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China on the 30th, with a total of 213 kg (pull).

He defeated Zhang Huihua (25, China) of 94 kg, clean and jerk 119 kg, and won the championship. 바카라사이트

Jiang Hui-hua was ahead in the snatch, but Lee Seong-geum came back and won the gold medal in the clean and jerk.

Lee Seong-geum also set new world records in the clean and jerk and the total.

The previous world record was Zhang Huihua's 120 kg of clean and jerk and 215 kg of total weight.

Zhang Huihua is a strong player in this weight class, having won the world championships in Pattaya in 2019 and Bogota in 2022.

However, Ri Seong-geum, who won the 48 kg class at the 2018 Jakarta/Palembang Games, defeated Zhang Hui-hua in Hangzhou this year to win his second consecutive Asian Games gold medal.

As the International Weightlifting Federation reorganized the weight class system in 2018, the 48kg class was eliminated, so Lee Seong-geum's win will not be recorded as his second consecutive win in the Asian Games in the weight class.

Before the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) spread, North Korea was a weightlifting powerhouse that threatened the strongest China.

However, since the 2019 Pattaya World Championships, there has been a question mark over the current North Korean weightlifting skills as they have appeared in international competitions.

North Korea was disciplined by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for not participating in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics held in 2021 due to preventing the spread of COVID-19 within the country.

The disciplinary action automatically ended on December 31, 2022.

North Korean weightlifters did not participate in the recently concluded 2023 World Championships in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

North Korean weightlifters will not be able to participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics as they have repeatedly failed to participate in international competitions where Olympic ranking points are at stake.

World Weightlifting wanted to check the current skills of North Korean weightlifters through the Hangzhou Asian Games.

North Korea's weightlifting team showed off its health as Ri Seong-geum won the first weightlifting competition of this year's competition by setting a new world record.

Ri Seong-geum presented North Korea with its fourth gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
