There was no stopping Deng Wei on Tuesday as she added an Olympic gold medal to her three world titles with a record-breaking performance.
Three-time weightlifting world champion Deng Wei broke two world records on her way to a first Olympic title in Rio on Tuesday.
Deng, world champion in the 63kg class for the past two years, lifted 262kg in total to set a new milestone.
In addition, the 23-year-old Chinese set a record with her clean and jerk, lifting a mighty 147kg on her way to victory.
Only the second woman in the 63kg event to claim Olympic gold as the reigning world champion, Deng finished ahead of Choe Hyo-sim of North Korea and Kazakhstan's Karina Goricheva.
"I am very excited and thrilled," said Deng. "At first, I was very nervous, because it was my first Olympic Games, but I won so I am just super excited.
"I have been targeting a gold medal for a long time, so I am very happy with this."
