Rim Jong Sim (75kg, North Korea) just entered the elite club of female two time Olympic champions!
the 23 year old snatched 121kg and won gold with her 145kg clean and jerk opener!
Still she came out for her remaining attempts, making 153kg!

Who else is Two Time Champion?
Very nice lifts, her technique is flawless.
Nobody else btw (arguably because of the 4 lifter limit).
Well, Hsu (-53kg) is also a double Olympic champion with a 212 total for some reason…
Damn, just looked at the lists mindlessly. Thanks, yes.
Right! Somebody needs to update that wiki article.
Just a thought, at 121+153, Rim is lifting worse now than when she was just injured in 2015, and that’s with Olympic priming. So either that turned out to be a chronic injury permanently limiting her abilities or there could be something to the Chinese reporter saying that Rim faked her injuries in Houston for drama and that he saw her horsing around in the backroom after the event.
