Intressting to see a belarussian lifter in asian championship
We might also see an Iranian in the Pan am championships.
Who? and why is this? i guess because Andrei wasnt allowed to compete in europeans?
Sohrab Moradi. As I understood, Iranian federation by mistake gave IWF information that Moradi retired, but he didn’t. Some bureaucracy doesn’t let him compete for several months, so he misses competitions, and the only chance to get two licenses is to compete in the Panamerican Championship
I hope to see Moradi at the Olympics, it would be very interesting 94 kg
Askar Turebekov says
He doesn’t have license for Olympics I think.
He has none now, but if he goes to Pan Am, there will be no problem I think, because he can get the second license at Iran Grand Prix. This Iran Grand Prix looks like made for him.
Rachel Belino says
doesn’t Kruaithong Sinphet represent Thailand? Not Vietnam…
It was a typo on an early version of the page, you are probably viewing a cached version, CTRL + F5 should hard refresh the page.
Actually, apologies, I managed to make a typo when correcting a typo. Good catch, thanks! Updated.
Rachel Belino says
thank you for correcting so quickly!
Nurudinov in the 105+ ?
It’s likely he just isn’t cutting specifically for this competition and will probably weigh in at 110kg or so. Common enough when there is a bigger competition later in the year i.e. Rio. Or maybe I’m totally wrong and he’ll turn up here weighing 130kg+ and total 475!
Maybe little overweight keeps his previously injured knee safe
Peter Upham says
Is Uzbekistan making a run at trying to get a 6th slot for Rio by blitzing the Asian Championships? Do they have a better chance of higher placings by having Nurudinov lift in the supers? They have a bit to make up on Egypt for that extra slot.
they’re sending him so he’ll have his two designated competitions in order to go to Rio. it doesn’t matter how a deep a team they send to the Asian championships, they already have their quota from Worlds and can only send 5 men
David Oliveira says
Denis Ulanov C&J World Record coming…
It’s interesting that Ulanov, who is always said to be a 85 athlete, actually never competed in 85 internationally, according to iwrp.net. Every time he was like 86-89
It’s crazy that he improved so much over the last couple of years. The best international result before that performance at the President’s cup was 155+195 back in 2013.
If Tiao Tao was gonna have to cut weight anyway, I would have preferred they sent him to this one rather than the Chinese nationals. This one, his records count.
They called Tan Yayun’s first 113 clean and jerk a press out?? That’s uncalled for…
Fucking streams! Both KAZ+UZB weren’t stable enough to properly watch/record. I’m hoping Kazsport uploads it later.
The 48 had slightly higher average totals than the last WWC. I wanted to see Tan attempt 122 after the 113 but then they turned it down, meh. Again: great depth. Rio will be worse.
56 Kruaithong vs. Meng was neat. Thai with a large total increase and China didn’t bomb, completely out of character.
None of the KAZ streams I tried worked for me.
I snooped around and this is a (somewhat) working source from one of the flash sites:
This is 480p Kazsport, the last number /03/ indicates quality, you can change it to 02 or 01 for 360p/240p. The link can be opened with players like VLC or MPC-HC.
Works great so far!
Lin Qingfeng is lifting as an 85? That’s a big increase from 69 unless it’s a different Lin Qingfeng.
Good to see both Sedov and Nurundinov in an international competition again!
David Oliveira says
Impressive performance from Artykov. One of the best non-chinese C&J’s of the last few years @69kg’s!
Rattikan Gulnoi (THA) changed her first name to Siripuch, strange.
I found a link, it works good for me:
Su Ying, injured, weighing under 78kg, gets silver in the snatch and bronze overall in the -85kg competition! Not bad!
Did Rybakou compete?
Yes, 100 + 120
Really? I didn’t see his result listed on the IWF page, at least not under the 94.
It seems that some of the top lifters did not peak for this competition, judging by the results. For example Nurudinov, Ulanov and Alimov did not do very big results. Very good choice though because Olympics are very soon and injuring yourself now would be just terrible.
Yes, and it was time for many countries to see their younger talent.
I suggest watching +105 recording thanks to wlift84. Bahador Moulaei 247 C&J may put him in Iran Rio team. Who knows he may get lucky and win a bronze.
I really hope IAAF announce all banned athletes before Olympic starts. I am in no mood to hear about some weightlifters to get caught and take away good publicity some of these guys hoping after working so hard.
Yes, I’ve watched it. Sad though that Moulaei’s snatch haven’t gotten to the level it was before his injury.
I too want that IWF releases bans of those who got caught in last years worlds. And if someone can be proved to have been clean and that doping result was incorrect I will be even more delighted.
