85kg A session: Tian Tao (China) Clean and Jerks 178kg to secure a gold medal in the Snatch. Not far off his 180kg training/test Snatches we’ve seen. Kianoush Rostami (Iran) tried to match Tian and win by bodyweight but couldn’t secure it overhead, he came third place. Artem Okulov (Russia) came second with 176kg and a personal best.

Moving into the Clean and Jerk Tian Tao opened at 211kg but missed all three attempts. Apti Aukhadov (Russia) Secured a 212kg Clean and Jerk which gave him bronze overall. Rostami opened at 214kg but then missed the two next attempts which would take him to first place, once at 218kg which was dropped behind after a successful jerk and once at 219kg for the world record but got red lights for an elbow touch. Artem Okulov went 6 out of 6 finishing on 215kg and a 391kg Total. He also had 220kg on the scoreboard for a small amount of time. Final Scoreboard (Twitter). Recordings.
