  • Wally Broccoli

    Antoniy Savchuk. He’s going to be one to look out for.

      For sure! I am really looking forward to him doing well.

      • Wally Broccoli

        I bet 190/235 in him. Maybe he can crack 430/

  • TheTurk

    I can’t see Turkish men weightlifters. Why? Any information?

    • guest

      That early startlist wasn’t complete.

      That said, I’m surprised they even have lifters to send. Didn’t the entire junior team get busted not too long ago? Strangely, there’s only one TUR on the 2013 sanctioned list.

      • TheTurk

        Yeah you’re right, entire Turkish Junior team is banned from competition. They send youth national team to the competition.

  • Alex

    350kg total in the 56kg class – gains (though definitely a mistake!)

      Thanks!

  • Covero

    What is the difference between category A and B?
    And what is the difference between age group junior and youth?

    • http://www.allthingsgym.com/ Gregor

      A / B Groups: when there are too many competitors to have a single group (15+ athletes I think) then they are split into A, B sometimes even C, D based on their posted entry totals.

      For the age groups see the attached image

      • Covero

        But the athletes are splitted randomly?

        • http://www.allthingsgym.com/ Gregor

          No, as I wrote above, they are split according to their entry totals. So that the weaker athletes go into Group B

          • Covero

            Sorry, Gregor. I missed the last part.
            Thanks!

  • TheTurk

    Any medal table?

    • http://www.allthingsgym.com/ Gregor

      Nope, feel free to make one.

  • verpuli

    Artem to break Ilya’s JR total WR?

    • TheTurk

      No, Ilya’s junior world record is 386 kg total, Artem did 362 kg total.

  • steven

    Nobody who wants to photoshop the backflip? Or the reaction afterwards?

    • http://www.allthingsgym.com/ Gregor

      Exactly my thoughts…

  • Aldo Roy

    Does anyone know if Clarence Kennedy is still lifting or has injuries taken another sensational young lifter?

  • Aldo Roy

    How many of you heard the Russian interview today of the two Russian girls in the 69kg? For a moment I closed my eyes and listened and I thought they interviewing two men!

  • Matt rundle

    anyone else having buffering problems my internet is normally pretty quick but even in low quality i miss almost every lift because of buffering
