YUJIAO TAN

 

Yujiao Tan is strong. How strong? Well, to put it into context, she keeps breaking her own world record.

The Chinese powerlifter is one of the greats of the lifting world, having not lost at a major competition since the London 2012 Paralympic Games, where she took silver. Since then, her collection of gold medals is frightening. Anyone challenging Tan in Tokyo knows they will be going up against a legend of sport.
