Londom Olympic 2012 Weightlifting: Kazakh prodigy takes gold, world recordLondon: Kazakhstan`s teenage prodigy Zulfiya Chinshanlo powered her way to a weightlifting gold in the 53kg category Sunday, breaking her own world record in the clean and jerk.


The 19-year-old posted a snatch of 95 kg before making history with 131 kg in the clean and jerk, one kilogram more than her effort at last year`s world championships.


The total of 226 kg gave a seven-kilo winning margin ahead of Hsu Shu-Ching of Chinese Taipei, who took the silver, and Moldova`s Cristina Iovu, who won the bronze.


Hsu was awarded the silver over Iovu due to a lesser bodyweight.


China`s 17-year-old prodigy Zhou Jun, one of the favourites for gold, was a surprise early casualty, failing to snatch 95 kg.


Another contender, Yuderqui Contreras of the Dominican Republic, also crashed out in the snatch after dropping all three attempts at 94 kg.
