LONDON (AFP) - China's Zhou Lulu won the women's Olympic over-75kg weightlifting gold with a new world record on Sunday, but insisted the Games had not been a success for Chinese lifters.

World champion Zhou set a new record of 333kg, breaking her old mark from last year's world championships of 328kg.

She also matched South Korean Jang Mi-Ran's world marker of 187kg in the clean and jerk.

But she said she was disappointed at not adding a snatch world record as well.
