Jeremy Lalrinnunga, the young prodigy who won gold in youth olympics last year also participated in the above competition and won a silver.
The 16-year-old boy lifted 131kg in snatch and 157kg in clean and jerk for a total of 288kg. However, Lalrinnunga was far behind the gold medal winner, Deni of Indonesia who lifted 303kg (132+171).

In comparison the weight he lifted last year in oct for his gold is 124+150 = 274kg.

Big improvement in a short time for Jeremy. He'll have to be over 320+ for medal contention in his weight class, so he has a long way to go at the senior levels. Given that he's improved by 14 kgs in 3 months, perhaps he can get close in another year...

I have not observed it but he has actually gone up in weight categories from 62kg to 67kg.

In the Asian Weightlifting championships in Ningbo,China, Meerabai Chanu lifted her personal best of overall weight of 199Kg but narrowly missed out on medal to a Chinese lifter who lifted the same weight on tie break. Another Chinese won gold with a lift of 208 kg. and North Korean Asian gold medalist Ri Song-gum clinched the silver with a lift of 200 kg. ( just 1 kg above 199).

These Asian women lifters are the best in the world and only 1 Chinese can compete at Tokyo olympics. So, Meerabai is still very much in line for a medal at Tokyo. Also she has started completing just 6 months back after a long injury lay off. So, her coaches have set a target of 210 kg for her at Tokyo which will surely win a medal with a chance for gold too.

At the same event, 16 year old Jeremy Lalrinnunga broke youth world record with a total lift of 297 kgs in 67 kgs. Of course, Jeremy still has to lift 20 kgs or so more to be in any medal reckoning at world level. But, he has improved 23 kgs in last 6 months since youth olympics.

Realistically though he can aim to be in that range at 2024 olympics when he will be around 21.

Thanks for the update.

I think Jeremy will need to improve by 25kg to be in medal contention imo.
