Anyone else feel the debate on this girls performance is pointless? A bit like Flo-Jo, her achievement has been tainted. It is just a shame there is no way to know for sure.

I just stumbled upon the topic this morning and found that overnight it must have taken off.

I need to find a video of that last lap.

Yep, thinking about it, the UK were head-to-head with the Ukrainians at the time and there had been no appeal lodged at that point, with the Japanese team having completed all their disciplines; but, I guess if a team gets pushed to 4th and they feel a score has been bad that it's only wise to appeal even after the fact.

The odd thing is, they must realise exactly what has been deducted and what for, without being informed, especialy since the commentators are pretty accurate at what they should get for a particular attempt and how much has been deducted and what for without being able to see any info relating to it; so, I suppose they sat and calculated that the points had been deducted for two areas instead of one and knew that if they got the appeal it would put them back in to silver...having said that had the judges not deducted the points, then none of this need have occurred and it makes you then wonder how many other minor points are being overlooked as well, without appeals to correct them.

On a lighter note, did anyone see the lifter today, almost starting his lift before the officials were off the lifting platform? They were cleaning blood off the bar, or something, and he was gesticulating to them to get the barbell back to him whilst he stood on the platform, and they were still sorting the smaller plates on the barbell as he was getting set-up.

They only just made it out of camera view before he started the lift.

The reason for so many failed attempts, according to a couple of commentators, is because the lifters are pushing the limits due to the standards being high and therefore lifting close to their PBs or above their PBs even with their opening lifts.


Some bombed out completely, in the men's 69kg, about 5 lifters missed every attempt in their snatch. At one point the missed lifts was around 70% with good lifts being only 30% of the lifts up to that point. There was talk yet again of lifters dropping bodyweight to make the group een though they had previously competed at around 18 lbs heavier.
