NANJING - Chinese 15-year-old weightlifter Jiang Huihua took the first gold in Asian Youth Games here on Saturday, by claiming the title of women's 48kg category with a total of 183kg.

Jiang stamped her control by snatching a 13-kg lead before she jerked up a game-high 100kg to win the title.

Sukcharoen Thunya of Thailand pocketed the silver medal with a total of 160kg. Both Yao Lingling from China and Kang Hyongyong from DPR Korea lifted 152kg. Yao edged off Kang on weight-difference to stand on the third place.

"It's my first continental champion, so I'm quite happy with my performance today," said Jiang, "I hope that one day, I can stand on the stadium of Olympic Games."
