Meanwhile in Russia …
Silence in the training hall only means one thing – a big lift is about to happen.
This time it is Aleksey Lovchev with 205kg.
Update: He did 205kg at the 2014 European Championships!
Update: Read Alexey’s interview on ATG.
Song in the background is DJ Tiesto – Life on Ibiza.
Regarding the Russian team for worlds:
First they wanted to announce it on September 27th, which obviously did not happen.
The current line up you see on the 2013 Worlds Start List is just preliminary and will change.
Then Venkov (the head coach) said that currently 13 athletes are in training camp. Akkaev by the way is not one of them because of health problems. All other athletes are well and it will be a tough choice to cut them down to 10 (8 + 2 reserve athletes).
Now the final date for the announcement is set for October 4th.
