In an impressive display of power the 24-year-old added 0.5 kilograms to her world mark with an opening effort of 133kg before lifts of 135kg and 136kg saw her claim the gold medal with ease.

She then went on to lift more than twice her own body weight with a final lift of 137kg to confirm her dominance in the women's under 67kg category.

Thailand's Somkhoun Anon finished a distant second with 102kg, ahead of Indonesian Sri Rahuyu.

Tan was joined at the top of the podium by compatriots Yan Yang and Shanshan Shi who triumphed in the under 61kg and under 55kg divisions.

In the men's competition, Iraq's Rasool Mohsin also broke his own world record in the under 65kg division on his way to gold with a lift of 213kg while Jordan's Abdelkareem Mohammad Ahma won the under 72kg category with a lift of 197kg.

On the third day of sporting action in the South Korean city, the hosts claimed a number of gold medals, proving particularlysuccesful at the Ongnyeon International Shooting Range.

The trio of Jin-Ho Park, Jae-Yong Sim and Jin-Hwa Jeon set a world record team score of 1904.7 in the R3 mixed 10 metre air rifle prone SH1 competition.

But it was Lee rather than world champion Park who topped the individual podium with a score of 211.6.

A close battle saw Lee finish ahead of her compatriot by just 0.6 points while bronze went to China's Paralympic champion Cuiping Zhang.

Young-Young Jeon secured South Korea's second gold after leading the R5 mixed 10m air rifle prone SH2 finishing with an Asian record of 211.0.

Thailand's Tanong Channam secured silver while a good day for South Korea was completed by Geon-Soo Kim who picked up bronze.
