Dave,Not trying to be argumentative but where do you hear the Chinese push their athletes to the breaking point consistently? I would imagine they push their athletes no more than the other countries who win. In fact, I would imagine the coaches probably do not have to push the athletes as much as they have to reign them in. Weightlifting is a lot of those folks way to a better life. I would be willing to bet that they are not pushed as hard or forced to participate when injured as much as those in say American high school or NCAA football. Like most sports it probably takes that push and drive whether it comes from the coach or athlete to succeed at the world level.
