A winner of the 30th Olympic Games and five-time world weightlifting title holder, Om Yun Chol bagged 24 gold medals at international games and renewed world records on six occasions, thereby creating a new sports legend of Juche Korea.

He topped the total rankings at the Asian Weightlifting Championships in June 2013 and the World Weightlifting Championships in October that year to be awarded the title of People’s Athlete.

He is shorter than others, but whenever he lifted the weight which was three times heavier than his body-weight, spectators congratulated his success with thunderous cheers.

The winner of Kim Il Sung Youth Honour Prize, Kim Jong Il Prize and titles of DPRK Labour Hero and People’s Athlete is burning his heart with the determination to achieve greater success.
