The 2016 IWF Junior Worlds are underway in Tbilisi, Georgia, and already the world’s best young weightlifters have produced some outstanding results. In the men’s 69kg category, the USA’s CJ Cummings — who, at 16, still has several years left to compete as a Junior — became the first American male to hold a world record in 46 years with his 180kg clean & jerk. Check out Cummings’ lifts and the impressive list of records he accomplished in his 6/6 performance. It’s also America’s first Junior World Championship since 2000.
