Asian Games: Emotional North Korean dedicates shock gold to his late mother

JAKARTA - North Korea s O Kang Chol broke down in tears as he dedicated his country s third weightlifting gold medal of the Asian Games to his mother, who passed away earlier this year. Second-string lifter O screamed and then wept as he took a surprise gold with a 336kg total (151kg snatch/185kg clean and jerk) on Wednesday (Aug 22) after North Korea s number one Kim Myong Hyok crashed out, failing all three attempts at his opening weight.
