China has won its 5th gold medal of the 2011 World Weightlifting Championships. The latest medal for China comes in the men’s 77 kg final. And there China would see two lifters finish on the podium.
China’s Lv Xiaojun is the 2009 World Champion. In his second attempt at the snatch, Lv demanded 170 kg. The snatch world record holder accomplished it with perfection. With the result, Lv took a lead of 4 kg heading into the clean and jerk.
In the Clean and Jerk event, Sa Jaehyouk of South Korea staged a strong performance. The 2008 Beijing Olympic champion lifted 203kg which would lift him to the bronze medal.
