LONDON (Reuters) - Adrian Edward Zielinski won Poland's first weightlifting gold of the London Olympics on Friday, edging out Russia's Apti Aukhadov by virtue of his lighter bodyweight after both athletes tied on a total of 385 kilograms.
Iran's Kianoush Rostami won the bronze in the men's 85 kg weight category contest.
Two of the athletes expected to challenge for gold, defending Olympic champion Lu Yong of China and Sourab Moradi of Iran, did not post a total weight after failing to complete a lift in both rounds of the event - the clean and jerk, and the snatch.
