Have you seen Hiromi Miyake lifting in Rio? It was a “no guts no glory” performance. She barely escaped elimination in the third attempt in snatch and had a solid first clean-and-jerk of 105KG. Then a no lift in the attempt 2 with a questionable decision of officials on elbow touching her leg in the clean. And in the 3rd attempt, she lifted 107 KG and got the 3rd place.
Congrats to Miyake’s dynasty!
