The four-time world champion dominated the competition, snatching 91 kilograms and lifting 114 kilograms in the clean and jerk. Despite being a top level lifter for a decade, the 26-year-old Wang had never competed in the Olympics due to injuries which ruled her out of Athens and Beijing.

Japan's Hiromi Miyake finished second and Ryang Chun Hwa of North Korea got the bronze.

Medal favorite Panida Khamsri of Thailand bombed out after three failed snatch attempts at 81 kilograms.
