London Olympics Weightlifting: Zielinski lifts Poland`s first goldLondon: Adrian Zielinski of Poland claimed weightlifting gold by the narrowest possible margin in the men`s 85kg category Friday.

Zielinski scored a total of 385kg, the same weight lifted by Apti Aukhadov of Russia, but the Pole was awarded the gold because he weighs 130 grams less.


It was Poland`s first gold medal of the Games and third overall after a silver in shooting and a rowing bronze.

Aukhadov had the lead after snatching 175kg and Zielinski missed one kilo more.


But the situation reversed in the clean and jerk, with the 22-year-old Pole hit 211kg and Aukhadov scoring just 210.

He buckled under his last dramatic effort at 213, which would have won the gold.
