How The A Session Happened

Monica Csengeri (Romania) made only one snatch at 86 before missing 90 twice but that was enough to secure gold in the first discipline. Kristina Sobol (Russia) hit 85 and Giulia Imperio (Italy) got 81 but both of them missing their final lifts took the pressure off Csengeri.

Three successful clean and jerks for Csengeri left the result in no doubt, leaving her with an eight-kilo win in the total. Her teammate Mihaela Cambei had an opportunity to make it a Romania 1-2 but had to settle for bronze medal in the total after missing 102 and trailing Sobal by one kilo.

Although she finished in seventh place, Sandra Jensen of Denmark had a good competition, hitting all six attempts and clearly leaving very happy.
