Lots of weightlifting news has been piling up over the last couple of days.
Some good, some bad. Here is your fix.
So there is hope. Remember that in his post London Interview Klokov said he wants to “rest until January, and then begin training for the Russian Championships that will take place in the summer (May 28th to June 4th).”
And that turned out to be exactly the case. Syrtsov said:
They practice. Although their participation in the Universiade is very unlikely. It was still not enough time. Most likely, they will be preparing for the championship of Russia, and attempt to qualify for the World Cup in October. I hope they have time to recover this time.
Nastassia Novikava pulled out as well. She gained weight (she is 58kg usually) and does not feel competitive at 63kg.
