    Background: Naim Suleimanov of Bulgaria celebrated his seventeenth birthday by setting three world records in the 60 kg (featherweight) division at an international weightlifting competition in Sarajevo on November 24. He started by lifting 140.5 kg in the snatch -- improving the old record by 0.5 kg and then broke it again by lifting 142.5 kg. He followed this by lifting 182.5 kg in the clean and jerk, which gave him a combined record of 325 kg. He then broke the record for the clean and jerk with 185.5 kg which gave him yet another world best, moving his combined total to 327.5 kg. All the previous records had been held by compatriot Stefan Topurov, set in Varna two years ago.
