Lu’s gold came after winning a silver medal at the same event in 2010, but that wasn’t better than the effort he produced in 2009. It was then when he set two world records - 174 kilograms in the snatch and an aggregate of 378 kilos - en route to winning gold. Lu won a gold medal in the clean and jerk event at China’s national championships in April with a lift of 201 kilos.
