Indian weightlifter Harjinder Kaur managed to take home the bronze medal after lifting 212 kg in total in the Women's 71 kg category.

Harjinder, who at one point, looked certain to miss the cut for a podium finish, had luck going for her in the final minutes of the event.
Nigerian weightlifter Joy Ogbonne Eze played her part in Harjinder's bronze win.
Joy, who was second after the Snatch event, failed to lift 125 kg in each of her three attempts in the Clean & Jerk. Her failure meant Harjinder, who everyone thought would finish fourth got bumped a spot, giving her third place.
