W49 Total World Record Falls Twice in Two Minutes

There was excitement in the Women’s 49kg category at the 2019 World Weightlifting Championships when two Chinese lifters went head-to-head, breaking the total world record in consecutive lifts.

First Hou Zhihui, who has missed an attempt at setting a new snatch world record, hit a 117 clean and jerk to extend her own total world record by a kilo to 211. Her teammate Jiang Huihua then put an extra kilo on it with a 118 clean and jerk and 212 total.
