Possible, but not under his current name by IWF (otherwise he would be listed on their website I suppose) :p 

I am kidding ofc , but it's possible some athletes change their names when they join another country

Well and it's weightlifting, a 2 or 4 year absence is rather easily explained :p

Men's -94 Kg was by far the best weight category here in Anaheim , new WR for C&J and Total for :IRI Sohrab Moradi with 233 Kg and total of 417 Kg to break his own record by 4 Kilos , 19 years old :QAT Fares Hassouna former Egyptian , won silver in C&J with 220 Kg , 20 years old :UZB Farkhodbek Sobirov won silver in snatch with 183 Kg

Moradi wasn't stupid to start with 230 or something while he only needed 220 to secure the gold in first place and then he broke the WR twice . :) great result for him, he wanted to break this CJ record for a long time.

 

and also that was a bit surprising bronze medal for Mousavi, he could beat Didzbalis for the silver but still bronze is very good for him.

 

and Rostami can go to hell now :d

Did he ever compete for Egypt ? I was wondering since IWF database has no history of that, but he is such a great weightlifter and also a nice guy.

 

he made a big mistake in his CJ attempt, that last attempt didn't change anything for him.. 3 more kilos would put him in bronze medal position but luckily for Mousavi he went for 220.  even though 220 looked like his max for today but he had to try 223 for the bronze.

he took part in some youth tournaments , but when his Father a former Egyptian international lifter went coach Qatar in 2014 he took him , few months later he broke YWR in Qatar international tournament in men's -77 Kg , but i must admit that he wouldn't have boomed like this if he stayed here
