Olympics – Weightlifting New World Record

The highlight of the week goes to the Chinese Olympic Team and especially a man and a woman. Long Qingquan and Deng Wei not only won the gold medal but also broke a world record in the men’s -56kg and women’s -63kgs weightlifting final. The woman Deng lifted 147 kilograms in the clean and jerk and 115kgs in the snatch for a world-record total of 262kgs across the two lifts while Long Qingquan lifted a combined world record of 307kg with a 107kgs clean and jerk. We’d like to congratulate this incredible performance from those Chinese athletes!
