On the 7th, the last day of weightlifting for this competition, two national flags were hoisted at the Xiaoshan Sports Center in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China.


Park Hye-jeong (Goyang City Hall), who competed in the women's weightlifting over 87 kg category, won the championship with 125 kg in snatch, 169 kg in clean and jerk, and 294 kg in total, and Younghee Son took second place with 124 kg in snatch, 159 kg in clean and jerk, and 283 kg in total.


The two drew hearts to be seen at the awards ceremony.


It has been 13 years since Jang Mi-ran (currently Vice Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism) won the gold medal in the women's heaviest weight class (over 75 kg at the time) at the 2010 Guangzhou Games for a Korean athlete to win the weightlifting event at the Asian Games.


With Li Wen-wen (23, China), the strongest in this weight class, unable to participate due to injury, Park Hye-jung emerged as a strong candidate for the championship and, as expected, lifted the heaviest barbell.


Son Young-hee also competed in good faith with Park Hye-jung until the end and won her silver medal.


It is the first time in the women's division that a Korean weightlifter has placed first and second on the podium in the Asian Games, and among men and women at the 1990 Beijing Asian Games.


Kim Byeong-chan (gold medal) and Lee Hyeong-geun (silver medal) in the men's 90kg class, and Kim Tae-hyun (gold medal) in the men's 110kg class.


It has been 33 years since Jeon Sang-seok (silver medal).


In the men's heaviest weight class (over 109kg) in the final match of the competition.


Lee Je-sang (Gyeongnam Provincial Office) took 4th place with 177kg in snatch, 223kg in jerk and 223kg, and 400kg in total.


The previous day, in the women's 87kg class, Ha-Je Yoon (Gimhae City Hall) took second place and A-Ram Jeong (Incheon City Hall) took third place, giving Korean weightlifting two medals.


Lee Sang-yeon (Suwon City Hall) in the men's 67kg class and Kim Soo-hyeon (Busan City Sports Council) in the women's 76kg class won bronze medals.


Korean weightlifting failed to win a single gold medal at the 2014 Incheon Games (1 silver, 1 bronze) and the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games (3 silver, 2 bronze).


In 2018, even though China, which prides itself on being the best in weightlifting, did not participate, the wound was even deeper as it ended up with no gold.


In Hangzhou this year, on the last day of the event, 'Post Jang Mi-ran' Park Hye-jung won the gold medal, ending the competition on a good note.


However, the star of the weightlifting event at the Hangzhou Asian Games was North Korea.


North Korea, which returned to the international stage four years after the 2019 World Championships due to the aftermath of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) and sanctions by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), won 13 medals, including 6 gold, 5 silver, and 2 bronze.


It achieved the best performance in this competition, beating China (5 gold, 3 silver, 1 bronze).
