Kazakhstan's Azerbaijani weightlifter Nijat Rahimov lifted a clean and jerk world record to win Olympic men's -77kg weightlifting gold in Rio.
Rahimov's final lift of 214kg gave him a total of 379kg, breaking the 15-year-old clean and jerk record of 210kg, APA reports quoting BBC.
China's Lyu Xiaojun, who set a world record of 177kg in the snatch, also lifted a total of 379kg but took silver because he is heavier than Rahimov.
Egypt's Mohamed Mahmoud won bronze with a combined 361kg.
