Lee Sangyeon snatched 150kg in training equaling his training record. He has hit 150kg several times before as a 69kg lifter back in August 2018, and in June 2018. Not only is Sangyeon now a lighter athlete as he cut down to the new 67kg weight class, he also made this 150kg snatch more convincingly than the rest.
Sangyeon bombed out of the 2018 Weightlifting World Championships, snatching 140kg on his opener before missing 144kg two times and a 170kg clean and jerk three times.
Lee Sangyeon is the South Korean 2018 National bronze medalist (146/178) and hopes to continue his international spot for the Tokyo Olympics.
