OH NO! OH NO!

Opeloge 
completed the Clean, but the bar seemed to slip from his grasp and the gold eludes him

BATTLE FOR GOLD

IF Opeloge does this, he will take gold
...
NO LIFT FOR RAGALA

The Indian fails with his final lift of 191 kg and leaves the door open for the Samoan
...
BATTLE FOR GOLD

Ragala 
is out for this third lift to put the result beyond doubt..


...
Cameroon's Nkoh also fails in his quest for bronze

Which means it will be Malaysia's Mohdad who takes bronze
...
Fiji's Rainibogi tries to go for a new personal best and take the bronze, but he can't manage it


...
That was Opeloge's first failed lift in the competition
...
Here comes Samoa's Opeloge

Going for 188 kg to take the lead

Oh! Oh!

He completes the lift, but he's got 2 red lights and the lift has been ruled out for a bent right elbow

NO LIFT

That's a bad error from the Samoan 
...
Ragala out for his second lift...

Crucial lift this and he nails it at 187 kg

He now has a 7 kg lead over Opeloge for 1st place
