Ecuador's Angie Paola Palacios Dajomes led a South-American one-two in the women's 69 kilograms competition as action continued today at the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) Youth World Championships in Thailand's capital Bangkok.
Palacios Dajomes won both the snatch with 100kg and the clean and jerk with 120kg for an unrivalled total of 220kg.

Rounding out the podium was Kazakhstan's Karina Kuzganbayeva, who managed a total of 207kg after coming third in the snatch with 94kg and the clean and jerk with 113kg.

Uzbekistan's Gulnoza Akhmadova took silver with 197kg, edging Mexico's Angela Yazmin Gutierrez Lopez who posted 196kg.
Akhmadova's best snatch lift of 89kg left her trailing Gutierrez Lopez by 1kg at the halfway stage, but her best clean and jerk lift of 108kg was 2kg better than that of her Mexican counterpart and was enough to narrowly overturn the deficit.
