Let’s start from the supposed leader of the category, Koanda Solfrid from Norway. She failed all three attempts in lifting 115 kg in Snatch, resulting in the red lights.

The next unpleasant moment that ended up with serious trauma, happened to the Ukrainian athlete Anastasia Manievska: she broke her arm at the third attempt of the Snatch exercise. However, she lifted 106 kg, failed to do 108 kg at the second attempt, but the third one was her last.
