Transgender athlete Laurel Hubbard made Olympic history but failed to record a successful lift in the women’s +87kg weightlifting.
She became the first openly transgender athlete to compete at a Games in a different gender category to the one in which they were born.
But after a failed attempt to lift 120kg and two failed efforts at 125kg in the snatch, her competition ended.
American Sarah Robles claimed bronze in the event, Team GB’s Emily Campbell won silver, and China’s Li Wenwen took the gold medal lifting an Olympic record of 320kg.
