Some clips from the training hall
The start list is out with 325 lifters competing.
Anaheim, United States of America, will be hosting the 2017 World Championships instead of Penang, Malaysia. (via)
Where is Liu Weijian?
Expecting new prs from CJ Cummings.
China doesn’t care that much about Youth/Junior worlds. I haven’t seen Liu Weijian this year at all.
They also didn’t enter their best (or at least better) W58 and W63 lifters here who could easily win against this line up.
wlift84, by any chance, do you know anything about that kid? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A-m9W-3_9M
He should be 16 already 🙂
As usual, waiting for Yeison and CJ to break some WRs.
And I see that Ritvars moved up a weightclass. I was hoping for a showdown between him and Yeison, but this would be interesting, too.
Song Huibing snatches 115 in training in that video at 1:54 (WR is 123). She did 125/153x last year, I’m expecting Youth WR attemtps.
She did a couple of solid 140 cnjs today in training too
(intentionally?) low results given these rather easy training lifts, disappointing. :/
Wait, how come the Youth 2017 games are going down in 2016?
Senior WWC 2017 was moved from Malaysia to USA.
Is this a joke? Look at this page please, http://www.iwf.net/competitions/world-championships/

When will the competition be streamed?
Andrea Zuluaga says
Por favor suban fotos de la competencia de la división 44, porque no se hizo video en YouTube, ni se pudo transmitir en vivo en la pagina de la IWF. Gracias
Wow. Yeison is exceeding my expectation with that 160 snatch. Hoping for someting close to 200 on the C&J.
C. Karlson-W says
Just want to thank you for putting these kinds of event pages together, like you did for the Rio Olympics. Very helpful for us newcomers to the sport!
Was the YT link for the +69 session kept somewhere? The stream was too early here, I’d like to see all lifts from Song and Lee.
In case you have not found it yet, I will upload those.
