Dave -

Melanie is a very consistent lifter and nearly always goes 5 for 6 or 6 for 6 at meets. She made 2 American records with her Oly performance. This is a question that was circulating for a while after she lifted, but it's impossible to say why she/the coaches decided on the attempts she made. I think she did an amazing job.
