Chinese Taipei's Kuo Hsing-Chun successfully defended her women's 59 kilograms total title having broken two world records just moments after losing them, at the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) World Championships here.
The 25-year-old Asian champion, who previously triumphed overall at the 2018, 2017 and 2013 IWF World Championships, managed a lift of 140kg in the clean and jerk to finish on a total of 246kg.
It came within minutes of North Korea's Choe Hyo Sim breaking Kuo's previous clean and jerk and total world records – 137kg and 243kg, respectively – by registering a lift of 138kg to end on 245kg overall.
Earlier in the snatch, Rio 2016 Olympic silver medallist Choe prevailed by breaking Kuo's world record of 106kg with a lift of 107kg.
Kuo took the silver medal with 106kg.
The bronze medallist across all three events was China's Chen Guiming, who last year claimed the gold medal in the clean and jerk and silver in the total.
Chen posted 101kg in the snatch and 132kg in the clean and jerk for a total of 233kg.
She also attempted to break Kuo's previous clean and jerk world record, but failed at 138kg.
In the men's 73kg event, China's Shi Zhiyong broke two world records to seal a repeat of his gold medal hat-trick from the 2018 IWF World Championships in Turkmenistan's capital, Ashgabat.
Having won the snatch with his first attempt at 160kg and finished at 166kg, Shi went onto break his own clean and jerk world record of 196kg by managing 197kg with his second attempt.
It secured him a total of 363kg, breaking his own world record of 362kg.
Such was Shi's dominance, he declined to take his final attempt.
