In the Snatch, KOSOV Alexei (RUS) came out when the other competitors already took all three attempts. With an impressive start on 173kg, he couldn’t control the weight of 180kg. His one and only good lift in the Snatch however gave him the Gold Medal. With a Clean & Jerk Gold he secured himself the first place also in the Total with 379kg.
GUIDEA Marcel (MDA) made a 10kg jump between his first and second Clean & Jerk attempts in order to defeat KOSOV, but the increase must have been too high and left him on second place.

Quote from KOSOV Alexei (RUS): Last time I’ve competed was a long time ago, so I needed time to get into it again.
