After missing both his openers in the Snatch and C&J and losing the snatch to Kim Tuan Thach’s 135kg, Om was under a lot of pressure. In the Press conference he said
“I was so afraid of losing because I put so much effort into winning at the Asian Games [with a 170kg World Record] a few weeks ago.”
He also mentioned the rivalry with China. Despite them having such a big pool of lifters to draw from he managed to beat their athletes and will beat them again. “I will protect my gold medals.”
- Om finished fifth in the Snatch. He is the first lifter to win Men’s 56kg Total after failing to reach the podium in the Snatch.
- Om’s and Thach’s 296 Total was the highest weight in the competition since Mutlu’s 300 in 2001
