During the snatch part, Hubbard was set to win with her first 120 kg lift, but tried to break the Commonwealth Games record with a second lift of 132 kg.
The crowd had been supportive of Hubbard, who passed all requirements to make it into the Games and compete in the women's competition.
The CEO of the Australian Weightlifting Federation Michael Keelan has asked the Olympic Committee to clarify why Hubbard has been approved to compete in the female branch, and said: "Ultimately, it is our strong view that weightlifting has always been a gender-specific sport, male and female, not a competition among individuals of various levels of testosterone". Hubbard was judged eligible to compete as a woman past year after showing testosterone levels below the threshold required by the International Olympic Committee.
Hubbard's inclusion within the competitors turned the ladies's over-90kg class into some of the mentioned occasions within the lead as much as the Gold Coast Video games.
"And I know a lot of changes have gone through, but in the past Laurel Hubbard used to be a male champion weightlifter".
"I don't think I am any different from anyone else, I don't think I am any tougher - I just do what I have to do", Hubbard said.
Laurel Hubbard previously competed below the title Gavin Hubbard Ahead of transitioning to a woman.
He had been impressed by her attitude at the Games.
New video shows Conor McGregor brawl at Barclays Center
McGregor hasn't fought for UFC since November 2016 and was stripped this week of the 155-pound championship he had never defended. Three matches scheduled for Saturday's UFC 223 card were scrapped because of the incident, cutting the card to 10 bouts.
Simon Molombe, a spokesperson for the Cameroon team, said: "I'm of the opinion that her past has an influence on her present output, and gives her an edge over others".
Hubbard was already 7kg clear of her nearest rival after her first snatch lift, and had two more up her sleeve.
The Commonwealth Games Federation also defended Hubbard's right to compete.
"It looks like it is going to be a career-ending injury, but I'm glad I'm going out trying to achieve my best on the platform".
Hubbard said it was likely she'd ruptured a ligament and sustained "some fairly significant tissue damage".
"I have no regrets about the attempts I made, because I believe that to be true to sport you really have to try to be the best that you can, and I'm happy with the decisions that were made". "But there's no indication at all that they were anything other than absolutely fantastic".
Commentators were stunned with the accident using Kiwi sporting identities pushing for Hubbard to haul the Kiwi flag in to the closing ceremony earlier in the week.
