SummaryEdit

Total score was the sum of the lifter's best result in each of the snatch and the clean and jerk, with three lifts allowed for each lift. In case of a tie, the lighter lifter won; if still tied, the lifter who took the fewest attempts to achieve the total score won. Lifters without a valid snatch score did not perform the clean and jerk.

Russia's Khadzhimurat Akkayev and Dmitry Klokov were on the start list but did not compete.[2] Akkaev later failed a drug test,[3] and it was suggested that they did not compete to cover-up their use of performance enhancing drugs.[4]

On 22 December 2018, it was announced that Ukraine's Oleksiy Torokhtiy, who had originally been the gold medalist, and Uzbek Ruslan Nurudinov, who had originally finished fourth, had tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.[5]

In May 2019, Nurudinov was disqualified,[6][7] and in December 2019, Torokhtiy was also disqualified.[8]

The bronze medal has not yet been reallocated.
