2013 American Record Makers women’s champion Karla Leon lifted the heaviest weight in the snatch competition with this success at 78 kg. She lifted in the 63 kg class.
Her hips came up a little too rapidly at the start and this resulted in the center of pressure going back a little too far on her heels. This slight technical error resulted in the bar pathway being a touch too far forward resulting in a step to the front on the recovery.
