China Keeps Perfect Record Going In Olympic Weightlifting
TOKYO (AP) — China has kept its perfect record in Tokyo Olympic weightlifting intact.
Chen Lijun won the 67-kilogram category after beating Colombia’s Luis Javier Mosquera by one kilogram in a dramatic finish.
Li Fabin won the 61kg class after pulling off a spectacular “flamingo” lift on one leg as he tried to balance earlier in the competition.
All eight Chinese weightlifters in Tokyo are gold medal contenders. Conditions are favorable for a historic sweep.
