Fourth Gold for the Chinese Women Team

We saw two lifters, AO Hui’s (CHN) and  KIM Un Ju’s (PRK) battle for the first place in the women’s 87kg bodyweight category. AO, Junior and Asian Champion in 2015 won the Snatch with 117kg, a 6kg advantage over 2014 Asian Champion KIM.

In the Clean and Jerk, KIM (152kg) could overpower AO with a small difference but in the Total, the Chinese lifter won with 268kg while the PRK athlete couldn’t do more than 263kg.

Dominican SANTANA PEGUERO Crismery Dominga won the Bronze Medal in the Total with 254kg and the Silver Medal in the Snatch with 116kg.

The fourth medallist in the category was VALDES PARIS Maria Fernanda (CHI) who stood on the third place of the podium for her Clean and Jerk performance of 140kg.

It is worth to mention Ecuadorian NIEVE ARROYO Oliba Seledina who – being 41 years old – finished seventh in Total and the Clean and Jerk and sixth in the Snatch.
