The Asian success continues

Women’s 58kg

After three good lifts in the Snatch, INTAMAT Kamonchanok (THA) won her first Gold with 86kg. The Egyptian lifter EL SAYED RASHED Esraa lifted the same weight; however she only ended second because of heavier bodyweight. WEI Chengyu (CHN) was only third after the Snatch with 1kg less, but caught the leaders in the Clean & Jerk.

Gold Medal in the Total was again awarded to the Chinese lifter being lighter than her Thai opponent. Both INTAMAT and WEI lifted 194kg. Bronze Medal went to the 15 year old DURAN Ana from Mexico.

Men’s 69kg

LINDER Albert (KAZ) took the lead in the Snatch with 135kg leaving the second place to the Chinese lifter SUN Youfu.

Only 6th after the Snatch, ADEL MOHAMED Ahmed (EGY) lifted his way up to the second place of the podium and earned the Silver for a Total of 289kg.

Celebrating his birthday on the platform, SUN won a Bronze Medal in the Total.
