American Tony Terlazzo, the 1932 bronze medalist, took the lead in the military press, tied with German Georg Liebsch, and then increased the lead in the snatch, giving him a comfortable lead. While he did not have the best clean & jerk, he easily won the gold medal with a world record total of 312.5 kg. Egyptians won the other medals, as Saleh Soliman and Ibrahim Hassanien Shams had the best marks in the clean & jerk, and won silver and bronze, respectively. Terlazzo would go up in weight and win the World Championships in 1937 and 1938 as a lightweight. Liebsch, who finished fifth in Berlin, won the World Championship in this class in both 1937-38.
