Kiwi weightlifting champion David Liti breaks 16-year national record

New Zealand's weightlifting golden boy David Liti is showing no signs of slowing down, toppling a national record today in Auckland which has stood for 16 years.

The 22-year-old surpassed Kiwi great Nigel Avery with a record 176kg snatch.

Liti said he was chuffed with his record lift.

"Over the moon really, I've wanted those records since I started weightlifting," said Liti.

His coach Tina Bell says his form is coming just right before the November world championships.

"We are just well and truly on our way to a great preparation for the world's," said Bell.

Liti won gold at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games men's 105kg+ division in April and was awarded a special sportsmanship award during the closing ceremony.
