The Men's 94 kg weightlifting event at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom, took place at ExCeL London.[1]

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.[2]

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[3] but was disqualified for weighing in 500 grams over the limit.

Aftermath[edit]

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.

These disqualifications included all three original medalists, and Saeid Mohammadpour of Iran, who originally finished fifth, became the new Olympic champion.[4]

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.

In line with the relevant rules and regulations, the IWF imposed mandatory provisional suspensions upon Vardanian, who remains provisionally suspended until his case is closed.[5][6]
