China’s weightlifting team has once again showcased their dominance in the sport, winning a total of 11 gold medals at the recent Phuket Weightlifting World Cup in Thailand. With this impressive performance, the Olympic lineup for the upcoming Paris Games is now almost confirmed.

In the women’s 87kg and above competition, Chinese athlete Li Wenwen emerged as the champion, clinching three gold medals in the snatch, clean and jerk, and total score categories. The Chinese team finished the competition with an incredible tally of 11 golds, 9 silvers, and 7 bronzes. Notably, four Chinese athletes, including Li Fabin, Liu Huanhua, Hou Zhihui, and Luo Shifang, managed to break a total of 5 world records during the tournament.

The World Weightlifting World Cup in Phuket was a crucial event for athletes looking to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics. In line with International Weightlifting Federation regulations, the Chinese weightlifting team sent its top members to compete in all 5 levels of events for men and women at the competition.

Following their remarkable performance at the Tokyo Olympics three years ago, where they secured 7 gold medals, the Chinese weightlifting team has been preparing for the Paris Olympics by introducing a mix of seasoned players and new talents. Key players like Shi Zhiyong, Li Fabin, Li Dayin, Liu Huanhua, Li Wenwen, Wang Zhouyu, Jiang Suihua, and Liao Guifang are set to lead the team in Paris.

The Chinese team has been on a winning streak in recent competitions, claiming multiple gold medals at the World Weightlifting Championships in Bogotá and the Asian Championships in Jinju. However, they faced tough competition from the North Korean women’s team at the Hangzhou Asian Games, with the North Korean team ultimately unable to qualify for the Paris Olympics.
