In the Clean and Jerk, the Armenian secured the Gold Medal with his first lift (230kg), then came out for a World Record attempt at 241kg, but this proved too much for him, and the World Record remained 240kg, held by himself.
In the snatch, Simon Martirosyan first lifted 190kg, then successfully lifted 195kg.
The end of the competition was very spectacular. In his third approach, Jan Yan (China) lifted 197 kg, setting a world record in the snatch. Then, Belarus’s Andrei Aryamnov approached the weight and successfully lifted 198kg and set a new record.
The last word was that of the Armenian champion.
