Reader Boris had the change to attend the Men’s 77kg live.
He sent in some photos of his experience.
What comes out really well is just how huge the arena is. No wonder some lifters struggle with stage fright.
Here is another photo gallery with awesome shots.
Do you attend one of the upcoming sessions? Write a review or submit your photos!

I’m going to the 105kg final on Monday, will get video of Klokov, Akkaev and Dolega.
Jelous of your golden tickets. Can’t wait. Enjoy the show.
I’ve been to 2 womens events and to the 77kg final last night. What a madhouse that was. TV doesn’t do it justice. When Lu hit that record in the Snatch, people were screaming cheers. The battle for 3rd made the place tense. What a wonderful event to have attended. I’m really super excited to see the 85kg tomorrow.
Wow! 3 sessions so far… That’s pretty awesome.
I only can imagine how the crowd exploded after that snatch.
It was electric. When he hit that C&J the house nearly came down. I think he was genuinely shocked at how warm and welcoming a non-Chinese audience was for him. It was his night plain and simple. Also when the other Chinese lifter came out and hit the C&J, it was amazing. People only realized that he was injured after that lift. It was unreal.
Personally, I was hoping Sae would give Lu a run for the money but after that injury it was destined to be a blow out. I’l report more on the 85kg after tomorrow.
Yea, well, have fun then and let us know what you experienced.
