Due to consecutive mistakes made by the coach and some Technical Officials in the Women’s 45kg bodyweight category at the second attempt in the Clean and Jerk (104kg) of DZHUMABAYEVA Yulduz (TKM), the International Weightlifting Federation arranged a meeting with the Technical Officials involved.

Following discussions, and in order not to harm the athlete’s achievement, a unanimous decision was taken that the second Clean and Jerk attempt (104kg) was accepted as good lift.

Consequently, DZHUMABAYEVA Yulduz (TKM) received Silver Medal in the Clean and Jerk and in the Total.
