Deep Enough For Ya?

Hiromi Miyake snatched 87 kilograms and clean and jerked 110 kilograms to win the Women's Weightlifting 48kg silver medal in London. Both her father and uncle were Olympic gold medalists.  This was her third Olympic appearance. Omedetou gozaimasu!!!

The women have been fierce this year. Great competition!

Great fun to see it all. I think this is probably the first Olympics where I can see a lot of the divisions thanks to the internet.

Talking heads were saying that it should have been a foul that her butt hit the ground on that snatch. if so, thats a pretty damning screen cap you got there.

The amount of weight that those tiny little women put up is downright humbling.

The last lift shouldn't have counted - I think it's clear to everyone. But, it wouldn't have affected her placing (she would have gotten silver anyway) just the total.
