China News Service, Tokyo, August 1 (Bian Liqun) "I feel a little regretful now." When asked how he felt after winning the championship, Lv Xiaojun, who had just stepped off the 81 kg podium in the men's lift of the Tokyo Olympics, gave a message. Unexpected answer.

  The Chinese weightlifting team, which has already won 5 gold medals, is the absolute overlord in the Tokyo Olympic weightlifting arena. In the mixed interview room after the game, there have been laughter and laughter from Hou Zhihui and Li Fabin, as well as the lore Chen Lijun and the "lunatic" in the stadium. "The hormone Shi Zhiyong released after winning the championship.

  Lv Xiaojun, whom they called the "army brother", is the most calm one. This is indeed the unique temperament possessed by a 37-year-old veteran in the Olympic Games of the Three World Wars and the father of two daughters.

On July 31, in the men's 81 kg weightlifting final of the Tokyo Olympics, 37-year-old Chinese athlete Lu Xiaojun won the championship with 170 kg snatch, 204 kg clean and jerk, and a total score of 374 kg. The snatch, clean and jerk, and total scores all broke the Olympic Games. Record.

This is the 21st gold medal of the Chinese delegation in this Olympic Games.

  The regret that Lv Xiaojun said was the 77 kg weightlifting finals of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

  In that game, Lu Xiaojun maintained a steady performance, snatching 177 kg, clean and jerk 202 kg, with a total score of 379 kg.

Unexpectedly, the Kazakh player Rahimov suddenly emerged and lifted 214 kg in the last clean and jerk, which exceeded Lu Xiaojun’s clean and jerk performance by as much as 12 kg, and was 4 kg higher than the dusty 15-year world record.

  Controversially, in this lore, Rahimov, who was "unsteady", still won three white lights, and eventually tied Lv Xiaojun's 379 kilograms and took the championship by virtue of his light weight.

  "Tonight I met a stronger opponent, and he is also an opponent worthy of my respect." Lu Xiaojun, who lost the championship, did not entangle the controversy and showed his general style.

  In the past five years, Rahimov, who won the championship that year, was banned from the IWF due to the doping turmoil, and the gold medal is expected to "return" to Lv Xiaojun's hands.

  Unfortunately, on this night of victory, Rio's gold medal has not yet come as hoped.

"I'm still waiting for the 2016 Rio Olympic champion, waiting for the decision of the International Olympic Committee." Lu Xiaojun said.

  In order to achieve the Olympic "three consecutive championships", it has not been easy for Lu Xiaojun in the past five years. He can stand out in the competition within the team and in the world arena. However, the enemy of time, on the one hand, makes Lu Xiaojun's physical function decline and pay more. Hard work; on the other hand, he missed too much time during the growth of his two daughters.

  "The longest time I didn't go home for more than half a year. Now after I finish training every day, I have to video with home at night." When it comes to family, the tough guy Lu Xiaojun suddenly softened a bit.

  "The children are quite small now. I am not here when I need to be by my side. It is a pity that my wife is working hard and very tired. She has supported me for so many years as always. I am especially grateful that this gold medal has half of my wife. Credit."

  Four days have passed since Lu Xiaojun’s 37th birthday. He has since surpassed Rudolf, a former Soviet weightlifter who won the 1964 Olympic Games at the age of 36 years and 40 days, and became the oldest Olympic weightlifting champion.

Together with the "three consecutive championships" in the Olympics, this is an extraordinary achievement.

  During the award ceremony, officials of the Chinese Weightlifting Association and members of the Chinese Weightlifting Team shouted "Military God".

  "I love weightlifting from the bottom of my heart, and I feel that I cannot do without it. I also especially like the feeling of fighting on the field. Fans all over the world call me the god of war. I want to prove that you are right."

  Many people think that the Tokyo Olympics will be Lv Xiaojun's last move.

But in the words of the "Military God", it was full of revealing that "we can fight again."

  "Relying on love, I persisted until the age of 37, and possibly 40. I have been waiting for one thing (the Rio Olympic champion). Maybe this thing will take a long time. Next, I will fight for the National Games. Yes, afterwards, we will look at the needs of the country. If the country needs it, I will stick to it as always.” (End)
