As of Monday, North Korea ranks fifth overall with eight gold, eight silver and nine bronze medals. Four gold medals came from weightlifting.  Choe Nong-gyun, the coach of North Korea's female weightlifters, has credited their knockout performance in the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon to their naturally strong lower body. 

Asked about the secret of their success, Choe told reporters on Sunday, "I guess North Koreans are born with strong lower bodies."
