Tuan takes gold at weightlifting nationals
Hoang Anh Tuan marked his triumphant return from a two-year doping ban by sealing a gold medal in the men's 56kg snatch event at the National Weightlifting Championships in the northern port city of Hai Phong.
He successfully lifted 126kg, beating London Olympian Tran Le Quoc Toan by a single kilogram.
However, in the clean and jerk event, Toan gained revenge over Beijing Olympics silver medallist Tuan when he lifted 153kg and took the gold medal, while Tuan could manage only 151kg.
The tournament, which features 130 athletes from 15 teams nationwide competing in weight divisions from 58kg to 75kg, concludes today. — VNS
