China's Suping Meng wins +75kg weightlifting gold

China's Suping Meng won Olympic gold in the women's +75kg weightlifting.

The 27-year-old failed with her first clean and jerk lift of 175kg, but succeeded with her final attempt at 177kg to pip Kuk Hyang Kim.

North Korea's Kim led after the snatch, lifting 131kg to Meng's 130kg, but only managed 175kg in the clean and jerk for a combined total of 306, just one kilogram adrift of the gold medallist.

Sarah Robles took the bronze for the United States, with a combined 286kg.
