                                                              Men’s 56kg

We’ve just completed the snatch segment of the men’s 56kg weightlifting, and China’s Long Qingquan has matched the Olympic record of 137kg, set by Turkey’s Halil Mutlu at Sydney 2000.
An impressive marker laid down by Qingquan, who had failed to lift 135kg on his previous attempt. But it’s on we go, the clean and jerk awaits.
