Meanwhile at Kazakh Nationals …
Zulfiya Chinshanlo Clean & Jerked 137kg.
On the Scoreboard it looked like she weighed in at 57.3kg and that they gave her a 4th attempt.
2012 -53kg Olympic Champion @zulfiya_chinshanlo (-58kg, Kazakhstan) clean and jerking 137kg/302lb as a full 58 (she's usually a 53, it's unclear what her future plans are) at the 2016 Kazakhstan Nationals. Despite winning her first senior world championship seven years ago in 2009, she's still just 22 years old! And yes, we are aware of the rumors surrounding Chinshanlo that are circulating in the int'l press regarding London 2012 retests — at this point they are just rumors so keep comments on that subject to yourself please.

She’s a tremendous talent! Always lovely to watch her lifting.

I heard they someone wants Chinshanlo and Ilyin out for Olympics… saying they are dopers… I don’t know if it’s true
The rumours are she and Ilyin are caught doping in the 2012 Olympics retests. It’ll probably turn out to be true unfortunately (Ilyin is my favourite together with Om), but for now it’s just rumours.
