Iranian weightlifting champion breaks snatch world record

Iranian weightlifting champion breaks snatch world record

Tehran, Sept 1, IRNA – Iranian weightlifting champion Behdad Salimi broke the world record in the snatch which was already held by himself.

During an informal record registering in the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, Salimi lifted 215 kg snatch in the +105 kg category, 1 kg more than the previous world record he had set at the 2011 World Weightlifting Championships in Paris.

 

However, this record will not be registered by the International Weightlifting Federation, since it was not set in a formal competition.
