Li, from the host team, was competing for his fifth time in a row in the National Games. He's already won three golds and one silver and holds the nickname "King of the Discus Throw".

With a reputation like that, you'd better be confident, and Li confirmed his fans expectations. The 34-year-old won the gold with this 60.39 meter throw. It's a score that landed far short of the 65.16 meter national record Li set in the 1996 National Games.

"The King" was crowned with another gold medal. Wu Jian from Jiangsu took the silver, and Nu'ermaimaiti Tu Lake from Xinjiang won the bronze.
