This would mean her team should start conditioning her mind and body to lift heavier weights as the record in the 59-kg in Tokyo by gold medal winner Kuo Hsing-Chun of Chinese Taipei was 247 kgs." "There are many people and highly dense population centers throughout Ukraine. Diaz, also the silver medalist in the Rio Olympics in 2016, made a total of 224 kilograms to beat eventual silver medalist Liao Qiuyun of the People’s Republic of China. Tags: .
