In Snatch the competition was on between Yedige YEMBERDI (KAZ) and Diyorbek ERMATOV (UZB). Ermatov made two successful lifts (128-133kg) on his first attempts while Yemberdi missed his first lift of 130kg and only on his second try could manage it. Yemberdi came out for his last attempt with 134kg on the bar which at the end was a good lift for him. Everything depended on whether Ermatov could lift his last attempt of 135kg, which at the end he couldn’t, therefore Yemberdi placed first and Ermatov second. Brayan IBANEZ GUERRERO (CAN) completed the Snatch podium with 132kg.

In Clean&Jerk, Ermatov finished thrid with three successful attempts (151-154-157kg). Yasar KACARA (TUR) took Silver with 158kg which he lifted on his second lift. Yemberdi just like in Snatch couldn’t lift his first attempt, however on his second try he lifted 165kg. On his last attempt he jumped to 172kg which meant if it is a good lift he will break the current World Standard of 171kg. He showed no hesitation on his last attempt and broke the Youth World Record which was also the first new World Record of the Championships.

In Total Yemberdi won it all with 306kg, Ermatov finished at second place with 290kg and Ibanez collected his second Bronze medal with 288kg.
