North Korea's Kim matches snatch lift record

LONDON (Reuters) - North Korea’s Kim Un Guk equaled the world weightlifting record for the men’s 62 kg class snatch lift, setting an Olympic record and racking up a substantial lead heading into the second and final round.

Kim lifted 153 kg in the one-phase snatch to match the world record of China’s Shi Zhiyong and add 1 kg to the same athlete’s Olympic record.
