2017 Chinese Nationals Women's Highlights
The women have finished up their competition at the 2017 Chinese National Games, and they've made some huge lifts.

The Games, which started Sunday in Tianjin and run through September 8, have been called quite possibly the best weightlifting event of the year. The Chinese National Games are held only once every four years, making it China's own national Olympics. Some of the highlights from the female competition include Chen Xiaoting (53), Chai Lina (58), Deng Wei (63), Xiang Yanmei (69), and Wang Zhouyu (75).  

Chen Xiaoting (53) snatched 103kg/227lb to equal the current world record!
