Participating in the 96kg class category, Amoah showcased true class with a stunning 184kg lift in the clean and jerk event to better his previous record.

He again produced a 149kg output in the snatch contest to dance away with another silver.

At the end, the Rio Games Olympian accumulated an imposing points build-up, strong enough to qualify him to his second straight quadrennial Games.

His UK-based compatriot, Forester Osei was odds on favourite to make it to the Tokyo Games, but failed to appear for the Kenya qualifiers, believing he had already sealed a place in the Games – after participating in earlier events.

The IWF is reported to have offered just a slot each to African countries, which means that only one lifter qualifies from Ghana.
