Another day of records

The second day into the competitions at Kazan 2013 Universiade was just as successful as Day 1. Already the Men’s 62kg could not go by without a new Universiade record established by the champion, Farkhad Kharki (KAZ) with 171kg in the Clean and Jerk.

Later on, the Women’s 58kg competition produced no less than 13 Universiade records: 4 in Snatch, 3 in Clean and Jerk and 6 in Total! These were to thank to three outstanding ladies: Choe hyo Sim (PRK), Iovu Cristina (AZE) and the final winner of the category, the supreme Taiwanese lifter Kuo Hsing-Chun.
