- Kim Un-Ju gave North Korea their fourth weightlifting gold medal of the Asian Games Thursday with a stunning 164kg clean and jerk world record in the women's 75kg for a 295kg total.

China's Kang Yue took silver, 1kg behind, after failing her attempt at the same world record with her final lift.

North Korea's Rim Jong-Sim, the Olympic champion at 69kg, found the step up in weight tough on her international debut at 75kg and took bronze a long way behind on 263kg.
