Total score was the sum of the lifter's best result in each of the snatch and the clean and jerk, with three lifts allowed for each lift. In case of a tie, the lighter lifter won; if still tied, the lifter who took the fewest attempts to achieve the total score won. Lifters without a valid snatch score did not perform the clean and jerk.
In June 2016, following the Russian doping scandal, it was announced by IWF that retests of the samples taken from the 2012 Olympics indicated that silver medalist Apti Aukhadov had tested positive for prohibited substances (dehydrochloromethyltestosterone and drostanolone). It was confirmed that Aukhadov was stripped of his medal by the IOC on 18 October 2016
