How the A Session Happened

This category looked set to be hard fought, with almost every athlete in the A group in with a chance of a medal. The snatches bore that out, with only seven kilos separating the field. Three made 95, meaning that the snatch medals were decided by the order of lifting, leaving Olga Te (Russia) with the gold as the first to lift the weight.

Te’s chances in the total took a big blow when a mistake from her coaches led to her being timed out on her first clean and jerk. As it turned out, the medalists on clean and jerk were the same but the order was different. Boyanka Kostova (Azerbaijan) took advantage of the opportunity and grabbed the clean and jerk and total golds with a 116 kilo jerk. Dora Tchakounte (France) had to settle for third.

Ine Andersson (Norway) was unlucky not to pick up a clean and jerk medal after a spectacular jerk recovery that saw her staggering sideways was ruled a no lift by the referees.
