Video - Jang shatters weightlifting records

Super heavyweight Jang Miran broke three world records to claim South Korea's second Olympic weightlifting gold in Beijing on Saturday.

The 24-year-old snatched 140kg and then set another record with 186kg in the clean and jerk. Her combined efforts beat the previous overall best by 7kg.

Ukraine's European champion Olha Korobka won silver with Kazakhstan's Mariya Grabovetskaya bronze.

China's Mu Shuangshuang, Jang's main rival, was missing from the event.
