Om Yun Chol of North Korea has just broken the 56kg Clean-And-Jerk world record when he put up exactly TRIPLE HIS BODY WEIGHT at the 2014 WWC in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
I don’t know what to say here guys, how did we allow a guy from NORTH KOREA, a place best known for concentration camps and malnutrition, to break a weight-lifting world record?
Here’s the video from Facebook:
North Korea’s Om Yun Chol beat his own world record in the men’s 56-kilogram clean and jerk by 1 kilogram on Saturday to grab weightlifting gold on the first day of competition at the Asian Games.
Om, the 2012 Olympic champion and 2013 world champion, lifted 170 kilograms Saturday to earn North Korea’s first gold medal at the games — a regional version of the Olympics. Om also had a combined total of 298 kilograms to mark an Asian Games record after lifting 128 kilograms in the snatch.
Isolated North Korea has 150 athletes competing in 14 sports at the games in the South Korean city of Incheon, where they are being cheered by local fans despite the bitter hostility between their governments dating from the 1950-53 Korean War, which ended with an armistice rather than a peace treaty.
Margarita Yelisseyeva of Kazakhstan won the other weightlifting gold in the women’s 48-kilogram category with a combined weight of 194 kilograms.
Again, with all of the best resources in the world at our disposal, how have we allowed some guy from North Korea to outlift Americans? This is pathetic. Maybe if it was someone from Russia the blow would be softer.
But it’s North Korea, a tiny country with a fat dictator who looks like Cartman from South Park and who kills his uncles by letting packs of rabid dogs eat them.
So who among us will step up and start training? Is it you? Let this be the call to duty you need.
