Who Will Be The First Woman to Lift 200 KG?[edit]

There has been discussion if there would ever be a woman able to lift 200 kg in clean & Jerk. After Tatiana lifted 193 kg in an impressive world record show in Almaty in November 2014 when she shattered 5 world records in less than one hour, she was asked about the prospect of lifting 200 kg, and she responded by saying I have been thinking about that.

In September 2006, Kashirina was suspended from competition for two years after failing an anti-doping control.[4]

The suspension ended in September 2008 and prevented her from competing at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
