Regarding weightlifting, it seems IWF decided to scrap team classification, opting for individual qualification. For each weight category there will be 14 lifters, with a maximum of one per NOC

This :(:(

"a maximum of four athletes per gender and only one per medal event."

 

terrible news for us, we don't have 100 medal chances at the Olympics, this means losing two chances already. limiting the number to 1 per nation in each weight is another bad news. we are not good in four lighter weight classes. 

 

and if they drop one of the heaviest weights to make it 7 (per IOC rule) that means only 3 medal chances left for Iran ! :(

  • Sad 1
  • Haha 1
