There have been a large number of utterly thrilling men's contests this olympics, with the 105+ class being clearly the most emotional. Many of the weightclasses have been won by someone pulling a lift out of nowhere to take gold.
Unfortunately, on the women's side, there have been a number of incredibly boring contests, where the gold medalist opened her lifting at a weight 5 kilos over where the silver medalist stopped.
China did an amazing job of finding some incredibly talented women whose power, strength and technique is impressive.
