Chen wins gold for awesome snatch

Chen Xiexia

You can wait a lifetime for a headline like that.

Would you believe it? My namesake wins China’s first gold of the Olympics with superior muscle-power and a fearsome snatch. Chen, 25, lifted 95kg in the snatch and set a new record for the class with 117kg in the clean and jerk.

It’s little things like this that make my day.
