MORADI Sohrab (IRI) confident in the Snatch with three good lifts ended first with a 1kg advantage over SOBIROV Farkhodbek (UZB). SOBIROV couldn’t secure a Total and missed his three Clean and Jerk attempts.

An incredible Silver Medal for Qatar as ELBAKH Fares Ibrahim E. H. (QAT) lifted 220kg in the Clean and Jerk. Ranking only 11th in the Snatch with 1 successful lift, he couldn’t grab a medal in the Total where he finished 4th.
Third place in the Snatch, DIDZBALIS Aurimas (LTU) ended 4th in the Clean and Jerk but his Total of 388kg was still enough for a Silver Medal!
