Records fall as Chinshanlo takes gold - London 2012 - Weightlifting
Kazakhstan's Zulfiya Chinshanlo won Weightlifting gold in the women's 53kg, setting new Olympic and world records in the process.
In October 2016, Zulfiya CHINSHANLO of Kazakhstan, competing in the Women's 53kg Weightlifting event, in which she ranked first and for which she was awarded the gold medal, has been disqualified from the Games of the XXX Olympiad.
Chinshanlo lifted 131kg in the clean and jerk - a new Olympic and world best - to set a total 226kg - another Olympic record.
The reigning world champion, who turned 19 this week, had earlier produced a snatch of 95kg.
Hsu Shu-Ching, from Chinese Taipei, edged silver ahead of her opponent by the slimmest of margins.
They sealed eighth and ninth place respectively following the Group A competition.
Chinshanlo was congratulated by Kazakhstan president Nursultan Nazarbayev at the ExCeL after being presented with the gold medal.
'He came and said congratulations, but I won't tell you how much money he will give me. I am afraid I will be robbed,' laughed Chinshanlo.
Hsu was also overjoyed to be heading home with a silver medal. She said: 'I am so happy I don't have the words to describe it.'
