HÀ NỘI — Olympian Vương Thị Huyền easily won her title at the National Weightlifting Championship in Đà Nẵng City on October 30.

Huyền of Hà Nội bagged three gold medals in the women’s 48kg pool, with results of 81kg in snatch, 101kg in clean-and-jerk and 182kg in total. It was not her best result as she had lifted 187kg at the April’s Asian championship.

While Huyền met no difficulty defending her top position, Olympian Trần Lê Quốc Toàn of the host city failed in the men’s 56kg class.

Toàn was expected to win the title after his main rival Thạch Kim Tuấn of HCM City did not compete. However, he failed in all three times at the registered weight of 120kg in the snatch event.

Earlier, he won a gold medal in the clean-and-jerk event with a 148kg lift.

The championship will end on November 2. — VNS
