China’s WANG and Russia’s KHUGAEV crowned World Champions


1kg advantage in the Snatch and 1kg advantage in the Clean and Jerk was enough for the Chinese lifter WANG Jie (CHN) to win all three Gold Medals in the Women’s 69kg bodyweight category. Missing two times her Snatch at 106kg, WANG registers her first result at an IWF sanctioned event.

Behind her AHMED Sara Samir Elsayed Mohamed (EGY), also missed two attempts in the Snatch, but was confident enough in the Clean and Jerk to register three Good lifts. AHMED who is several times Youth World Champion as well as Youth Olympic Champion in Nanjing 2014 is a real hope for Egypt in the lead up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Following them, with a Total result of 209kg – 23kg less than Silver Medallist – NGARLEM Kristel (CAN) stood up on the third place of the podium, winning Canada’s first and only medal at the 2015 IWF Junior World Championships.


HOZA Volodymyr (UKR) started with a Gold in the Snatch, but couldn’t go above 200 in the Clean and Jerk. Attempting 203, he couldn’t execute the lift. KHUGAEV had only to lift once – Clean and Jerk at 202kg – to win the Gold, and he never came out for his second and third attempts.

2014 Youth Olympic Champion KHUGAEV Khetag (RUS) already competed in 4 bodyweight categories. Starting his first international competition in the 69kg, he is impressively dominating in the 94. With his Total of 374kg, he was one of the most impressive Russian athlete competing in Wroclaw.

Missing the Snatch medal only because of a higher bodyweight, JIN Yunseong had to lift only 1kg more than PAREDES MONTANO Lesman (COL) to win the Bronze – what he did – Leaving the Colombian lifter 4th in the Total but still Bronze Medallist in the Clean and Jerk.
