South Korean Jang Mi-ran, who won weightlifting gold at the Beijing Olympics, says that after struggling with her weight as a teenager, being an athlete has made her happy with her 275 lbs. "I used to think that my size was a flaw before I started weightlifting," said Jang. "But after I started weightlifting, that has become my strongest point. Now I'm very pleased to be dubbed the world's strongest woman." Jang broke two world records in Beijing and plans to compete again in 2012. [Reuters]
