Chinese Weightlifter Mu Confident Of Winning Gold

Chinese woman and world record weightlifter Mu Shuangshuang expressed confidence of winning the gold medal in the women's 75 kg class this coming August in the Beijing Olympics. She revealed this over a phone interview recently. The 24-year-old weightlifter, born in Jilin, enters the national weightlifting team after the 2004 Athens Olympics. She gradually becomes world-famous during the following four years by successively winning snatch world titles in the last three years. She is currently training with the national weightlifting team in Tianjin.

Despite her greatest rival's (Korea's Jang Mi Ran) inevitable presence in the same competition, she swears she will make China proud and have the national anthem played at the awarding ceremonies. For the past 3 years, Jang Mi Ran has gotten the best of Mu even though they have lifted exactly the same weights because Mu was heavier than Ran.

At the moment, Ms. Mu is awaiting the annoucement of the official roster for the Chinese weightlifting team that will compete against the best of the best the world has to offer.
