tl;dr: Nobody knows at this point ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Ever since it was announced that there will be new weight classes, the weightlifting rumor mill has been turning relentlessly.
We’re going to have 10 weight classes at world championships and 7 at Olympic games.
One thing that is for sure at the moment, nobody knows anything concrete! But obviously this doesn’t stop speculation…
The official announcement is due to happen in July at the IWF Meeting in Uzbekistan.
Dmitryi Chumak now posted these numbers. What they are based on? I have no idea. I have heard very different numbers floating around, but who knows (I sure as hell don’t 😅).
Update: People familiar with the matter tell me Dmitryi’s numbers are all fake.
