The 19-year-old sensation showcased his prowess in the men's category up to 89 kilograms, matching the world record set by Chinese competitor Li Dayin and securing the gold medal, as reported by BTA.

Nasar's remarkable performance didn't stop there. In the clean and jerk event, he set a new world record of 181 kilograms, only to have it surpassed moments later by Colombia's Jason Lopez with a lift of 182 kilograms. Nevertheless, Nassar's dominance remained evident as he outclassed his opponents in the push segment, lifting an impressive 215 kilograms on his first attempt.
