Lifter Muthu out of medal race
India's Thandavamurthy Muthu fell out of the medal race by finishing fifth in Group B in the men's weightlifting competition at the Olympic Games on Saturday.
Muthu lifted 105.0 in his very first attempt in snatch and achieved 135.0 in the third attempt in clean and jerk to finish fifth in the group with an aggregate of 245.0.
The final positions will be known only after the competition in Group A is over later in the evening.
Muthu's fifth position finish has put him out of the race for medals as his overall position can only go down further and not up.
