Vietnam and Uzbekistan produced two gold medallists apiece in the men's, while China dominated the women's ranks, winning five titles, at the Weightlifting competition at the 2017 Ashgabat 5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games.

Several lifters served notice that they are likely to be fixtures on the big stage in the years ahead.

Sohrab Moradi (IRI) is the new world record holder in the men's 94kg division. He raised a combined Snatch and Clean & Jerk aggregate of 413kg in the air with relative ease to break a benchmark set in 1999.

On the women's side, Liao Qiuyun (CHN) targeted her own place among the sport's elite after she topped the 58kg category. "I can be top three in the world. I don't think that will be a problem,'' she said.

While all the competitors deserved high praise for their efforts, perhaps the top marks went to the Weightlifting Arena itself.

"This is simply gorgeous,'' said veteran Australian coach Leo Isaac of the venue. "It is one of the best I have seen, if not the best."
