Mongolia hits gold and Merida marks another historic “last”

In the women’s 75kg Mongolia’s only entry Ankhtsetseg Munkhjantsan confidently collected the 3 gold medals despite an elbow injury on her last jerk. Mexican Aremi Fuentes kept the silvers at home, while Canadian Kristel Ngarlem added 3 bronzes to her team’s rich medal collection.

The podium of the women’s +75kg in Merida will go down in history as the very last one at a World Championship, as after 1st January 2017 it will be replaced by two new categories of 90 and +90kg. Tania G. Mascorro won this significant gold for the host Mexico flanked by USA silver medallist Marissa Klingseis and bronze medallist other Mexican Gladis Bueno.
