Other titles went to Lai Gia Thanh (three golds) in the youth men’s 56kg pool and Do Tu Tung (three golds) in the junior boys’ 50kg.

Tung on Monday made his name as he set up a new world youth record in the clean and jerk of 128kg, beating the old one of 127kg by Thai Teerapat Chomchuen last year.

The team also grabbed six silver and three bronze medals.

The competition which is a Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Qualification event started on April 23 and will close on April 30 with the participation of 248 lifters from 22 countries.

Teams who reach a high result here would earn quotas for the YOG to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, later this year.
