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.
Kazakhstan's Ilya Ilyin broke a world record (later annulled for doping) in the clean and jerk with a lift of 233 kilograms, as well as a world record (also annulled) for total weightage with 418 kilograms. Ukraine's Artem Ivanov was on the start list but was disqualified for weighing in 500 grams over the limit.
The results of this event were decimated following the 2016 retesting of the original in-competition samples for banned substances.
Six of the top seven athletes were disqualified when the 2012 samples were retested and found to be positive for the presence of performance-enhancing drugs.
On 6 October 2016, the IWF reported that as a consequence of the IOC's reanalyses of samples from the 2012 Olympic Games, a sample of Norayr Vardanyan, who represented Armenia, had returned a positive result.
