    The record of Chinese rookie Feixinyi (18), who ranked second in total, was 234kg (104kg in snatch and 130kg in jerk and jerk), which was 17kg lower than Lim Eunsim.

    She lifted 105 kg in the first period after all other athletes' snatch competitions, confirming first place in this category, and Lim Eun and Shim lifted 111 kg in the second period, setting a new record for her competition.


    Then, in the third period, he applied for 118kg and attempted to break the world record (117kg) held by Deng Wei (China).


    However, this time I unfortunately missed the barbell.


    In the clean and jerk, Rim Eun-sim stood on the platform after the other players had completed the third period.


    Lim Eun-sim, who had already confirmed his victory by lifting 135kg in the first period, failed to win 140kg in the second period, but set a new record in the clean and jerk and total competition by lifting 140kg in the third period.


    Korea's Ji-an Han (28, Daejeon City Sports Council), who participated in this match, performed poorly with 93kg in snatch, 111kg in jerk and 111kg, and 204kg in total, finishing in 7th place.


    Lim Eun-sim is the younger brother of North Korean weightlifting hero Lim Jeong-sim (30).


    Lim Jeong-sim won the women's weightlifting 69kg class at the 2012 London Olympics and topped the 75kg class at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.


    In 2019, she won the gold medal in the 76kg class at the Pattaya World Championships.


    At the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, her older sister, Lim Jeong-Sim, topped the women's 75 kg class, and Lim won the gold medal in the 69 kg class.


    At that time, sisters Lim Jeong-sim and Eun-sim participated in an adult international competition together for the first time and won their first Asian Games gold medal.


    After making her international debut at the Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, Lim took second place in the 64 kg weight class at the 2019 World Championships in Pattaya, marking her leap to world-class status.


    North Korea has not participated in an international competition for four years since the 2019 Pattaya World Championships.


    Borders were closed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19), and the country was also suspended from international competitions for failing to participate in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.


    North Korean weightlifters returned after four years at the Hangzhou Asian Games.


    Although Lim Jeong-sim did not return, his younger brother, Lim Eun-sim, became the leader of North Korean weightlifting and climbed to the highest spot on the podium.


    All gold medalists in the four weight classes (49 kg, 55 kg, 59 kg, and 64 weight classes) in the women's weightlifting division at the Hangzhou Asian Games held until this day were North Korean athletes.
