Will LK-99 break the record for highest temp at which 0 resistance is observed in a material at ambient pressure?

Will these results from China (zero resistance at ~110K/ambient pressure but resistance at higher temperatures/ambient pressure) be replicated by others attempting to replicate the original claim of zero resistance at room temperature/ambient pressure? Will this discovery be regarded as the record at ambient pressure regardless of whether or not zero resistance is observed at room temperature/ambient pressure? https://twitter.com/Andercot/status/1686805961124855810?s=20

It appears this is not replicating, so I am considering resolving to NO by EOD.

Worth noting that there already exist superconductors with Tc over 110k at ambient pressure, so this would not break the record if confirmed.

>As of 2021, the superconductor with the highest transition temperature at ambient pressure is the cuprate of mercury, barium, and calcium, at around 133 K (−140 °C)
