Nathasha started by lifting 80 kg in the snatch, and then went on to lift 84 kg, securing silver. The gold went to the Mexican Andrea Martinez (85 kg) and the bronze to the North American Hayley Reichardt (84 kg).
In the throw, the Brazilian started with 101 kg of weight, then managed to lift 104 kg and successfully finished lifting 106 kg, which guaranteed not only the bronze but also the new Brazilian record in the throw. Two Americans completed the podium: Jourdan Delacruz and Hayley Reichardt lifted the same 108 kg, but Delacruz took the gold by the tiebreaker criteria.
The other Brazilian who climbed the platform today also in the 49 kg category was Luíza Dias, who finished in ninth place with a total of 175 kg (she had 95 kg in the throw and 80 in the snatch).
“It was sensational, it was a total overcoming. She beat Brazilian records in the throw and total and stayed until the last move in the fight for the title. With the weights she lifted, Nathasha would get a medal at the World Championships, she has already reached that level”, praised coach Dragos Stanica, in a statement to the Brazilian Weightlifting Confederation (CBLP).
