The Women's 53 kg weightlifting event at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, United Kingdom, took place at ExCeL London on 29 July.[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]

The original gold medalist, Zulfiya Chinshanlo of Kazakhstan was disqualified from the Games on 27 October 2016, and her medal, results and records stripped. Re-analysis of Chinshanlo’s samples from London 2012 had resulted in a positive test for the prohibited substances oxandrolone and stanozolol, both anabolic steroids.[3][4]
