Deni comes up short in Rio

Indonesia’s Deni Deni is out of the men’s 77kg weightlifting competition at the Olympics after Group B action wrapped up on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old could only post a combined total of 323kg in the snatch and clean and lift, which was well below the mark of 346kg set by group winner Andres Mauricio Caicedo Piedrahita of Colombia.

Deni ultimately finished in fifth place out of six competitors in the group.

The medals for the event will be handed out later today when Group A takes to the floor.
