10 years after his first world title in 2009 aged 25, Lu Xiaojun won the 2019 World championships. Despite pulling his back during the snatches, Lu went on to hit a competition personal record at 207kg to maintain his title as world champion and set new world records in the clean and jerk and total.
During my interview with Lu Xiaoujun late last year, I was fascinated by this lift: how it felt, whether his coach was happy for him to take the lift despite being in pain, and his continued improvements despite his age.
Please enjoy part two of the WH Lu Xioajun interview.
