Olympics Photos 2008 Zhang lifts China to four Weightlifting golds

Zhang Xiangxiang won his first Olympic gold medal after lifting 319kg in the Men's 62 kilogram

Zhang's chance of winning the gold was settled even before stepping onto the floor in the Clean and Jerk. First the ROK's Ji surprisingly failed all three attempts trying to lift 161kg and left the competition with no medal. Then the DPRK's Im also stumbled under the pressure, spending all his attempts at 169kg to no avail. Salazar took his chance and succeeded in lifting 167kg after three attempts for the silver medal. Zhang then lifted 169kg and then 176kg to seal his first gold, China's fourth of the Weightlifting competition.
