0

Thailand’s Sukanya Srisurat has broken the Olympic record for the Women’s 58kg category. She lifted 110kg in her third attempt at the snatch in group A. It broke the previous record, set by China’s Li Xueying at London 2012, by 2kg.

This is Sukanya’s Olympics debut and it comes three years after she completed a two-year ban from the International Weightlifting Federation after testing positive for the banned substance methandienone.
