Hidilyn Diaz of Philippines fails to get a medal in first Olympic stint

In women's 58 Kg Group B weightlifting competition, Hidilyn Diaz of the Philippines failed in her bid to barge in the top three and bring home a medal as she was not able to complete in her attempt to lift 118 Kg at the London Olympic Games 2012.

In Group B, ESCOBAR, GUERRERO Maria Alexandra of Ecuador got the first place by lifting a total of 226 Kg while SMITH, Zoe of Great Britain bagged the second place with a total of 211 Kg.

If Diaz only successfully lifted 118 Kg, her total should have been 215 Kg which is good for second place.
