Yang Zhe achieved four consecutive National Games championships.
In the 96 kg finals, the 27-year-old Tian Tao, runner-up in the Rio Olympic Games, was significantly better than his opponent. In the snatch, he led the second with 187 kg by 7 kg.

Before stepping down, Tian Tao shouted, "I will come to the next Olympic Games!"
"Today's performance is very poor." Tian Tao said after the game. Today's results are still far from his peak state. Because of knee injuries and the loss of the Tokyo Olympics, the mentality and state of the whole person have declined in recent times. Training Not active or systematic, I only practiced for two weeks before the National Games.
During the Rio Olympics, Tian Tao participated in the men's 85 kg competition and won the silver medal.
Later, he rose to the 96 kg class, won the World Championships, and set a world record for clean and jerk of 231 kg.
However, Tian Tao revealed that Shengzhong poses great challenges to every joint, and injuries follow.
"I asked for 232 kilograms today. In fact, everyone knows that I will definitely not lift it, and I can't lift it. I just set a goal for myself." Tian Tao said that he had a bad mentality before and even "don't want to practice", but see By the age of 37, Lu Xiaojun had won the Tokyo Olympics and was inspired.
Tian Tao said that the next step is to thoroughly deal with the knee injury. It is not the opponent but the injury that stands in front of him.
"If I'm okay, then (the goal) is the next Olympic gold medal."
