Tell us a bit about your background. 

I was born and grew up in a least-developed province in China, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, and dreamed of living in a developed city when I was a little girl. The dream was realized: I went to Shanghai, one of the most developed cities in China, 30 years ago, and completed my medical education in Shanghai Medical University. I eventually worked in Beijing for 10 years before starting an international career.

This is Su Ying, winner of the the 77kg class at China Nationals and the only man who managed to edge out Lu Xiaojun on body weight. His coach is a friend of Ma Strength and mentioned that Su’s distinguishing feature is his work ethic. He comes from rural Zhejiang and a few days prior to this 170kg he performed multiple snatch high pulls with 170kg to prepare his body and mind for this weight. It looked heavy and he looked tired but he still put in the work and technique was sound. In fact throughout his winter training Su mentioned never letting up on the requirements and the work paid off. So the next time you are tired in training, work to overcome, keep your technique sound, focus on recovery, and move mountains. #mastrength #chineseweightlifting #77kg #snatch #snatches #olympiclifting #olylifting #olifting #weightlifting #olympicweightlifting  #crossfit
