This is Behdad Salimikordasiabi from The Islamic Republic of Iran.  He weighs approximately 370 lbs and won the Gold with a clean and jerk of 543 lbs and snatch of 458 lbs (1000 lbs total).  Unbelievable…

This is Wang Mingjuan of China.  She weighs approximately 106 lbs and won the gold with a clean and jerk of 250 lbs and a snatch of 200 lbs (440 lbs total).  Unbelievable, as well.

Which of these gold medalists is more impressive?  One of them lifted over 4 X their body weight and the other lifted about 2 3/4 of their body weight.
