Oh right the elbow hit the knee - they didn't red light it until after the jerk though? Wut.

Jury let that one pass - good lift! He deserved it.

One lift to go, for the championship. Australia's to win.

Fails his 201 clean. That kind of shat on the end of the competition.

On replay it does look like it, but f**k, who knows. Jury's decision is final like in any sport. Onwards!

If it was an elbow touch the time to fail the lift was after the clean, not the jerk.

Also, with that camera angle if the elbow was in front of the knee it would appear to touch without actually doing.

Controversial, and did kind of kill the comp, but I think a good call.

The Aussie lifter was an absolute beast.

That's all I can add to the discussion. And what an ace Jerk by the PNG lifter (despite the touch).

Just come out the stadium, atmosphere was CRAZY! Gutted for Peter K....

English lads did great! Both quite young with room to improve I'm sure.

That 200 to win was one of the best lifts I've seen given the occasion. Jury slowed it down but right decision in the end.
