Just so happy for Li and watching a true strong female lift like that is just so inspirational to me!

Fantastic! I also spotted a video of the winner of the women's 55kg. She was so happy she cried after the clean and jerk :) Blessings on all those powerful women!

I don't watch the Olympics, but I kept watching after lardass Hubbard got booted and I really enjoyed watching female athletes absolutely kill it. Congratulations Li!

My joints scream when I watch these women lift. Their strength is amazing.

The photo of those three strong women - I phrase I usually loathe, but which is more than fitting here - warms my heart. Even masked, their elation is evident in their eyes and everywhere. Congratulations to them all.

P.S. It is also nice to see female Olympians in athletic wear appropriate to their activity. No cleavage, naked midriffs, or exposed buttocks. Refreshing!

“Female sport exists to celebrate the achievements of extraordinary females, not those of ordinary males.” — Dr. Emma Hilton

Just watched her win on YouTube and teared up about it tbh. :’) It’s so inspirational to watch these women do amazing feats with their bodies. The skill she displayed... woo! What a pro.

Mr. Laurel looked like such a farce beside real female athletes. I'm glad women took all the medals, because actually seeing the women weightlifting made the idea of him winning much more horrible. Him winning gold to show the world the stupidity was only nice in theory.
