Her personal best is 87kg, but in context of this final, she already has 8 kg of a cushion ahead of her next closest competitor.

Time now for Mirabai Chanu!

To give context to why she's the clear favourite for gold, her first attempt mark in Snatch is listed at 80kg, while Clean & Jerk is at 105 kg.

Her next closest competitor - at least in terms of mark set - is at 70kg and 90kg respectively. That's quite some confidence, isn't it?
