Gold Medal - Sophia Tanasan (200)


Mirabai Chanu - (No rank, no score accrued in the clean and jerk stage)

...

That's too big a weight for her. Thailand's Sopita Tanasan claims the gold medal in the 48 kgs category with an invincible performance. Some late opposition provided by Indonesia's Agustiani. Japan's Miyake claims the bronze medal spot, recovering after an unconvincing start.

...

Can Agustiani lift 115 kgs for an extremely unlikely gold medal lift? Tanasan hugs her coach on the sidelines as the 2nd attempt fails. One final try remains. The last lift of the evening.

...

Tanasan fails for the first time. Finishes with total score of 200. Can Agustiani do the impossible? 

...

Tanasan to go for her best shot required under the circumstances. Agustiani, who already has a silver ensured, will need to lift 115 kgs to challenge her.

...

Miyake failed for her 2nd attempt. No faulting for her third attempt though. Lifts 107 kgs, ensures a bronze medal.

...

Mirabai fails to lift 106 kgs on her third attempt as well. Fails to put up a total. This is so disappointing for an athlete. To not even put up an aggregate score.

...

Yelisseyeva finally manages to lift 106 kgs. Gets into the bronze medal place, but possible that she will not be able to hold onto it. Exits with score of 186.

...

She went for high stakes. 106 kgs. And failed. That seemed like too steep an ask from the beginning. Mirabai has one final chance remaining to get a total score.

...

Yelisseyeva still on score of 183. Has one more lift left to improve that. Mirabai steps up for her second attempt.

...

Undisputed leader Tanasan comes up and lifts 106 kgs comfortably. If any doubts remained who the gold was going to, this will dispel them all.

...

Current leader Candelario fails to stretch her lead. Second and third lifts fail for her. Candelario finishes at 187. Still stands a chance of finishing with a medal.

...

Great overhead strength from Miyake. Lifts 105 kgs. Moves to a score of 186. Wonderful revival after a troubled start to the event.

...

Mirabai Chanu goes for 104 kgs but fails. Executes the clean but cannot lift it above her body. Legs give way. Next two attempts to be all-important.

...

So close to a perfect third lift from King. Just dropped it at the last moment though. The American brought out her best performance, but it was not to be. She is out of contention of the medal places.

...

King's legs give way under 103 kgs. Remains in second position, but heavier lifts remain from others.

...

Yelisseyeva lifts 103 kgs! A slightly untidy clean but a very good jerk.

...

Candelario lifts 102 kgs! Moves to the lead, as expected. That's expected to change over the next few lifts as well. 

...

Okoeva finishes with a score of 169. Inconsequential in terms of medal places. We're coming down to the heavy lifters now.

...

Mauritius' Ranaivosoa fails to lift 100 kgs on her third attempt and gets knocked out. Race for the silver and bronze medal narrowing down to a few contenders now. Wei-Ling's third attempt for 100 kgs draws a single red light from the judges as well! They must be spotting some infringement there.

...

Wei-Ling's second lift deemed illegal as well. Looked fine though. The Chine Taipei athlete cannot believe it, has her hands raised in exasparation.

...

The weight moves up to 100 kgs. King makes light work of that. Wei-Ling up next.

...

Wei-Ling goes for 99 kgs on her first attempt. There was some shaking of the hands and movement of the shoulders. The lift has now been nullified. On for her 2nd attempt. American King is ready for her lift as well. Both of them are medal contenders at this stage.

...

Paratova's campaign comes to an end. Third attempt is a failed one. 95 kgs remains her best lift in the clean and jerk stage.

...

Gets it on the second try. Moves to a score of 183. Every successful lift is seeing a new leader at this stage.
