While two important lifters in the up to 96 kg weight category were missing, the medals were awarded late this evening Japan time. The Qatari Meso Hassona (177 kg/225 kg) crowned himself the new Olympic champion and won the competition with a led of 15 kg in total.

Fares Ibrahim Elbakh is the name of the new Olympic Champion up to 96 kg and is still known to most weightlifting fans as Meso Hassona. He outpaced the competition by dropping the Venezuelan Keydomar Giovanni Vallenilla Sanchez (177 kg/210 lb). kg) as well as Georgian Anton Pliesnoi (177 kg/210 kg).

Hassona’s triumph comes as no surprise, the reigning Junior World Champion holds also all current Junior World Records and benefited from the bad luck of two medal winners of the past years. Both the Iranian Sohrab Moradi and the Chinese Tian Tao were absent due to serious injuries and thus cleared the way for the Qatari.

The strong Canadian Boady Santavy finished fourth and showed a lot of courage. Despite his unsuccessful second attempts in the snatch and clean and jerk, the Canadian continued to improve successfully in both sub-disciplines. in the end, the North American was only one kilogram away from a medal spot, but it whetted the appetite for further competitions with the self-proclaimed “Snatch King” from Canada.

In the fifth to eighth places followed Taiwanese Po-Jen Chen (176 kg/205 kg), Kyrgyz Bekdoolot Rasulbekov (166 kg/208 kg), Pole Bartolomiej Adamus (163 kg/197 kg), and South Korean Dongju Yu (160 kg/200 kg).

Cyrille Tchatchet (155 kg/195 kg), who started for the IOC Refugee Team, made a strong competition in the B-Group. The 25-year-old, who trains in Great Britain, finished 10th and can therefore be more than satisfied with his performance. (We reported)

Local hero Toshiki Yamamoto had a bad day. The 29-year-old Japanese failed after three valid snatch attempts in the clean and jerk and did not manage to bring a valid attempt into the total ranking. After Hiromi Miyake, he is the second Japanese lifter who was unable to finish the Olympic event in front of his home backdrop.

Looking ahead to tomorrow, there is only one competition. Then it’s the turn of the female athletes again. They will compete in the up to 76 kg weight category. The American medalist Katherine Nye will be part of the game.
