The new 85kg total record - 395kg - breaks that of Andrei Rybakou, who totalled 394kg at the 2008 Olympics (but lost on bodyweight to Lu Yong, who also totaled 394kg).

"I am so happy to set two world records since to earn the achievements I trained hard," Rostami said.

The Fajr Cup IWF Grand Prix has brought 32 weightlifters from eight countries together.
