At just 21 years of age, China's weightlifting star Li Wenwen stole the show in the women's 87kg+ finals at Tokyo 2020, walking away with gold and breaking three world records. After winning the gold, she curled her arms to make a heart-shaped sign over her head and paid tribute to her coach, former Chinese weightlifter Wu Meijin. On her personal Weibo account, Wenwen wrote "big size little cutie," showing that while she can be tough, she also has a soft side.
