In the start, the Colombian gave up the bronze to the Thai Weerafon Wichuma, by lifting 143 kilograms, but was close to the dispute for the medals.

Mosquera’s effort to secure the gold

Mosquera’s last attempt in the clean and jerk was fatal, since he was the only one in the competition and the hard challenge was to reach 182 to go for gold in total and he did it with 325 kilos.

‘Pacho’ Mosquera had won the gold medal in total at the World Cup in Anaheim, United States, in 2017.

The Olympics have not been for him, because in 2016 he broke his Achilles tendon ten days before the competition and for Tokyo 2020 he was not in the selection, which only had five athletes.
