    LONDON (AP) — China’s Zhou Lulu won the gold medal in the women’s super heavyweight class in a world record-smashing duel with Russia’s Tatiana Kashirina.

    The Russian lifter’s total world record of 332 kilograms was short-lived, with Zhou beating it by 1 kilogram with her second clean and jerk. Kashirina also set a snatch world record.
