Sun Haibo from Jilin held the role as  title favorite in the men's 105 kilogram-and-above category. This is his third lift, he failed when challenging 203 kilograms in the snatch event.

So Sun Haibo started at 240kg in the clean and jerk, much heavier than the opening weight by the other opponents. Sun rose to the occasion, and this lift made it tough for his competition to catch up.

And he wasn't finished, Sun asked for 245kg in his second attempt, which he also conquered successfully.

He increased the weight to 248 in his final attempt, but failed. Still, Sun Haibo totalled 445kg to win the gold medal in the 105 kilogram-and-above class.
