Angelica successfully executed all three of her snatch attempts at 75kg, 77kg, and 80kg (176lbs). She followed up with a clean and jerk of 99kg (218lbs).
“The meet definitely didn’t go as planned, but I had to adjust and just lift,” said Angelica about the day. Her adjustments ultimately earned her a 179kg (394lbs) total, and in addition to the victory her performance represents a competition PR.
