Hsu Shu-ching, 25, of Taiwan won the gold medal for women’s 53 kg weightlifting at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 7 August 2016. Hsu previously competed in the same category in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and tied for second place for total weight lifted but was awarded the silver medal due to lower body weight. Zulfiya Chinshanlo of Kazakhstan, who was first place in 2012, has been accused of doping and was stripped of her gold medal, making Hsu the gold medal winner for 2012.

On the same day, Taiwan’s women archery team, Tan Ya-ting, Lin Shih-chia, and Le Chien-Ying won the bronze medal against Italy.
