Beijing '08 (Chinese Weightlifters)

Since I have been on the topic...

Here is some footage of the Chinese weightlifters training. Zhang Guozheng, the reigning Olympic champion in the 69kg class, is at shown in the beginning of the footage in the black shorts and no shirt. Midway through is another 2004 Olympic champion, Shi Zhiyong.

Communism sure helps these countries in sports such as weightlifting, just as it did for the East Germans and Russians back in the day.
