Here is 22 year old Mattie Rogers (69kg) in the warm up area at worlds 2017.

Last Warm Ups:

  • 99kg Snatch / 129kg Clean & Jerk

Competition Lifts:

  • 104kg Snatch (got close to 107!) / 131kg Clean & Jerk

During the clean and jerks there were a lot of two minute clocks. That’s why you see her last warm up 9 minutes before her first attempt. They were just about to take another warm up attempt when she was finally called on stage.

Mattie originally took home bronze, but she is likely to get silver as Romela Begaj supposedly tested positive.

5 warm up sets… apparently that’s all it takes to warm up for a new clean & jerk world record.

Here is 29 year old Sohrab Moradi (94kg) in the warm up area at worlds 2017.

Meanwhile in Doping News …

Following allegations by the German documentary of widespread doping the IOC kicked off a reanalysis of Beijing 2008 and London 2012 samples (for all sports).

As expected there are lots of weightlifters who got caught.

Here is how the retests for Beijing 2008 and London 2012 work.

Update 13.01.2018: Ilya’s ban ends 10.06.2018.

Via Inside the Games:

The violation is considered as one rather than two as Ilyin had not been notified of his first violation at Beijing before he committed the second violation in London.

Ilyin’s two-year length of ineligibility has been based on the rules applicable in 2008 and 2012 with two years being the basic sanction which could be imposed for a first violation involving “non-specified substances”.

The Updated IWF Sanctioned Athletes List now shows:

Update 30.09.2017: Meanwhile in Budapest …

The IWF announced that today that the executive board unanimously decided that countries with produced three or more doping violations from the 2008 and 2012 retests will be suspended for one year.

Countries Affected: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, China, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine.

Update 05.05.2017: The Kazakh federation reports that it received the following news from the IWF (via). The IWF has released no...

Here is a quick training hall edit of 19 year old Rebeka Koha in the training hall at worlds 2017.

I didn’t have enough footage to make a full session video (with all sets etc.). So today you get just the heaviest weights compiled into a 3 minute video.

  • Snatch 90kg
  • Clean & Jerk 105kg
  • Clean Pulls 120kg
  • Rounded Back Deadlifts 85kg
  • Back Squat 130kg
  • Squat Jumps
  • Weighted Push Ups
  • V-Ups Sit Ups

About those rounded back deadlifts. Coach Eduards Andruskevics told me he likes them, because in addition to all the weightlifting specific exercises that usually require isometric strength (keeping the back straight), it’s important to train the full range of motion of a muscle (from rounded – full stretch, to full contraction) in addition to all. Use light weights and caution.

Here is the heaviest training hall session I have ever filmed.

5 days out from competition, 24 year old Lasha Talakhadze (166kg) worked up to:

Session Duration: around 90 minutes.

Whenever Lasha does his heavy trainings you can feel the nervousness of the coaching staff. Everything gets triple checked. The bar, the platform, everything gets an inspection by Giorgi Asanidze and Co. Some dust particles on the edge of the platform? You bet they will get wiped away before Georgia’s national treasure steps foot on it.

Lasha, however seemed relaxed as always. “You want me to snatch 210 today? Okay, no problem.”, or something along those lines, is what I imagine the conversation before training to be like.

In addition to the usual tension before such a heavy training, this one had the added bonus of having the Iranian team train just a few meters away from Lasha. You can see them in the background a couple of times.

How to shut up haters the right way…

Here is Mart Seim’s 253kg Clean & Jerk PR in front of an unbelievably disrespectful Iranian crowd at the 2017 World Weightlifting Championships in Anaheim, USA.

Follow Mart on Instagram @martseim.

Just like in Rio they were butthurt over the jury’s (correct) decision to red light Salimi’s lifts.

Mart told me that before the lift, when he walked on stage he thought “not again, … Rio flashback”. He tried to focus on a clean lift as he missed his 251kg attempt before that. The 253kg secured his clean and jerk silver medal oder Iran’s Saeid Alihosseini.

Mart was furious. He said “Of course I was angry! Weightlifting fans used to be polite.”

After the competition some Iranian fans came up to him and apologized for their behaviour, saying that they weren’t booing him. This obviously completely misses the point as the damage was already done (Rustam Djangabaev missed his attempt).

What do you think?

In european football, when “fans” misbehave the clubs get punished. I think IWF should consider the same for Iran.

By the way the audio in the video doesn’t really do it justice. It was insanely loud during his attempt.
