Any great competition always leaves the spectators at least a little bit shocked with one or multiple results, and we can safely say that the men’s 102 kg category gave us a few surprises.

One of them was the unexpected performance of Bekdoolot Rasulbekov from Kyrgyzstan. After a start in Group B, with only 165 kg lifted on the Snatch and falling way down in the overall rankings, the Kyrgyzstani weightlifter managed to redeem himself during the Clean & Jerk.

He had three successful lifts, the final being 220 kg, falling just one kilogram below the silver medalist and winning a bronze medal for the lift. Still, due to his underwhelming performance in the Snatch, his total of 385 kg left him in ninth place in the overall rankings. 

Rasulbekov has two silver medals from the Asian Championships and a bronze medal from the Islamic Solidarity Games. He participated in the Tokyo Olympic Games in the 96 kg category and finished in sixth place, a result which he hopes to improve in the summer.
