How the A Session Happened

Snatches were hard-fought, with gold and silver ultimately being decided on lifting order as Raluca Olaru (Romania) and Emily Godley (United Kingdom) lifted identically – both making 94, missing 97 and then moving up to make 98. The Romanian hit 98 first, so she took the honours. Alessia Durante (Italy) took bronze just a kilo behind.

Olaru and Durante both made all of their clean and jerks, with Durante a couple of kilos stronger. However, they were no match for Godley, who hit 122 with her opener. When Durante opted to match that to secure the silver medal rather than going higher, Godley was assured two gold medals with two lifts to spare.
