It all came down to Sunday in the women's weightlifting +75 kilogram competition at the 2012 Olympic games in London, and once again it was the Chinese that came out on top as Zhou Lulu took the gold medal with a new world record of 333kg's lifted.

The silver medal went to Russia's Tatiana Kashirina, who set a world record of her own in the snatch, but was six kilos short of the new Olympic record of 187 Zhou set in the clean and jerk, leaving her one kilo shy of Zhou's total.

Armenia's Hripsime Khurshudyan won the bronze medal, lifting 294 total kg's.

Sarah Robles of San Jacinto, CA finished seventh, while Holley Mangold of Centerville, Ohio took 10th.
