China gets gold in Olympics weight-lifting

China has picked up its first gold of the Beijing Games.

Weightlifter Chen Xiexia set a new Olympic record to win the forty-eight kilogram class.

The hosts hope it will be the first success of many - they have spent billions in an attempt to top the medal table.

It continues a sparkling start for China, who has drawn huge praise for yesterday's spectacular opening ceremony.
