Today, Monday there was only one medal decision with the event of the up to 55 kg weight category on the third day of the competition.

In an exciting duel with the Chinese Qiuyun Liao (97 kg/126 kg) Hidilyn Diaz (97 kg/127 kg) secured the gold medal.

The decision could not have been more exciting, because world champion Liao and the later Olympic champion Diaz came out of the first discipline, the snatch, with the same load of 97 kg. Until the last clean and jerk attempt, both ladies were neck and neck and each showed a flawless series.

The 30-year-old Filipina then delivered the decisive kilo and thus crowned herself the deserved winner. Thus, for the first time at these Games, only the silver medal remained for the national team from China.

Bronze went to the Kazakh Zulfiya Chinshanlo (90 kg/123 kg), who will be the only female Kazakh weightlifter at these Olympic Games due to doping sanctions. After her compatriot Son, who already won bronze in the up to 61 kg weight category yesterday, this was the second and thus also the last medal chance for the national team from Kazakhstan.

Chinshanlo started to catch up in the clean and jerk after a rather disappointing snatch. Here she put on the highest initial load of 123 kg but did not go beyond this weight. Despite only one valid attempt, it was enough for third place ahead of Muattar Nabieva (98 kg/114 kg) from Uzbekistan.

The best and only European lifter in this A group was Kamilla Konotop (94 kg/112 kg). The current European champion was only just below her performance from April, where she won the gold medal in Moscow.

From a German perspective, tomorrow will be a really busy day. With Sabine Kusterer and Lisa Marie Schweizer, two German female lifter will be in for a serious fight. While Kusterer will compete in the up to 59 kg weight category at 4:50 a.m. German time, Lisa Marie Schweizer will compete for a top ranking in the up to 64 kg weight category at 12:50 p.m. German time.

Especially Schweizer’s competition is worth every attention, as the 26-year-old sports policewoman suffered a slipped disc a few weeks ago and fought her way back “onto the Olympic train” through intensive rehabilitation training.

Sarah Davies from Great Britain will also be lifting in Schweizer’s weight category and has a good chance of winning a medal with a bit of luck.
