Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) -- In recent years, women weightlifters of the DPRK have displayed the dignity and mettle of Juche Korea in various international games. In this regard, a reporter of the Korean Central News Agency had an interview with Kim Chun Hui, secretary of the Weightlifting Association. According to her, the DPRK had retained twelve world records after the 2024 Asian Weightlifting Championships. When Won Hyon Sim set a new world record in the jerk of women's 45kg category at the 2024 IWF World Cup held some time ago, the number of the world records increased to 13. It is equivalent to 50 percent of the world records of women's weightlifting and, accordingly, the DPRK takes the first place in holding world records. The DPRK weightlifting team failed to take part in international games for nearly four years after the outbreak of the pandemic in December 2019, but it has accumulated its strength through tireless training, regarding this period as an opportunity to provide solid guarantee. In less than seven months since the 19th Asian Games, the team won more than 120 medals, including 85 gold medals, in various international games and made an eye-opening success in setting world records in particular. Our women weightlifters, who retained only two world records before the 19th Asian Games, are leading the development of world weightlifting, registering their names in the 13 world records. Kim Chun Hui said that the players and coaches are full of confidence in sure victory and enthusiasm to glorify the honor of the country with their patriotic sweat and passion.
