TONY MORGAN (left) coped with a difficult day remarkably well. What should have been a proud moment for him as Britain's first weightlifter into action was completely overshadowed by events, but Morgan, who had no chance of a medal in the 75kg category, still managed to give his best.

Competing in Group C - lifters are ranked from Group A, the medal contenders, down to C - Morgan delivered a personal best in the snatch and managed to finish a highly creditable 26th overall.

The gold medal went to Fedor Kassapou of the Unified Team.
