2012 London Olympics – Weightlifting: Lin Qingfeng wins Men’s gold for China in 69kg

Lin Qingfeng went some way to restoring China’s reputation as a weightlifting superpower after taking Olympic gold in the men’s 69kg tonight.

China dominated proceedings on home soil four years ago, winning eight of the 15 golds on offer in Beijing.

But their mantle has been firmly challenged at London 2012, with China, North Korea and Kazakhstan each taking two golds from the first six on offer at ExCeL while the men’s team were yet to stand on top of the winners’ podium.

But all that changed after Lin comprehensively took the field apart with a total of 344kg, with silver going to Indonesia’s Triyatno (333kg) and Romania’s 20-year-old Razvan Constantin Martin clinching bronze (332kg).
