Wang Mingjuan trying out for the Chinese women’s Olympic weightlifting team at the national sports training center in Beijing. At 48kg (105 lbs), Mingjuan qualified for the team and is competing the London Olympics. 
China has developed some of the toughest women weightlifters in the world. TIME contract photographer James Nachtwey documented China’s team as they prepared for the 2012 Olympic games in London.
