Ceniza falls short

HANGZHOU, China—John Febuar Ceniza came narrowly short of bagging a bronze medal in men’s weightlifting on Sunday in the 19th Asian Games.

Ceniza’s total of 297 kilograms in the men’s 61kg category pulled the Cebuano to fourth at the Xiaoshan Sports Centre Gymnasium behind third-placer Chungguk Kim of North Korea.

Fabin Li of host China registered a new Games record total of 310 kgs. He also reset the old Asian Games mark after carrying 143 in the snatch prior to lifting 167 in the clean and jerk.

Myongjin Pak secured the silver after netting 307 in the total built around the North Korean’s 136 (snatch) and 171 (clean and jerk).

Ceniza was a kilo short of Kim’s 298 after posting 297 in the total following a lift of 134 in the snatch prior to the Cebuano’s 163 in the clean and jerk.

Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz is set to take centerstage on Monday in the women’s 59kg before fellow Tokyo Olympic Elreen Ann Ando troops to the floor in the women’s 64 kgs.

Rosegie Ramos earlier missed out on a medal after placing fifth in the women’s 49-kg event.
