WHO TO WATCH


Men's 62kg


The reigning Olympic champion, Kim Un-Guk, won't get a chance to defend his gold medal after testing positive for a banned substance. That creates an opportunity for Chen Lijun, Oscar Albeiro Figueroa Mosquera and Eko Yuli Irawan to battle it out for the gold.


Women's 58kg


Chinese Taipei's Kuo Hsing-Chun finished eighth in London when she was the youngest member on their weightlifting team. She returns as the gold medal favorite in Rio.
