There is surely a celebratory air in Pyongyang right now — North Korea is fifth on the Olympic medals table.
They have four medals overall which puts them in joint ninth position in terms of the total number of medals earned. But it's gold that counts, and Kim Un Guk's success in the men's 62-kilogram weightlifting Monday night means they now have three of them.
The only thing that might dampen their excitement: South Korea is currently in fourth position on the medal standings. China is currently top of the table, followed by the U.S. and then France.
