Tian Tao (CHN, 85) Hits 221kg Unofficial World Clean & Jerk
Olympic silver medalist Tian Tao (CHN, 85) clean and jerks 221kg/486lb for an unofficial world record!

He hit 155kg and 164kg in the snatch and went 190kg, 206kg, and 221kg in the clean and jerk, ending with a 385kg total.

In order to be an official world record, the event must be an IWF sanctioned meet and since Chinese Nationals aren't officially IWF sanctioned, this lift is not considered an 'official' world record. At the 2016 Olympic games this past summer in Rio, Tao won silver overall with a 178kg/392lb snatch, 217kg/477lb clean and jerk for a 395kg total. 

We also recently saw video of him hitting some massive squats as well as a 225kg clean & jerk.
