he has a chance for medal but I don't think his chance is too big, don't forget Ruslan Albegov here. also Turmandize and Seim will fight for a medal here. I think the race is wide open for silver and bronze. even though Djangabaev was very good in Jakarta despite finishing bronze behind Salimi and Alihosseini (and as you said none of them are here :facepalm:) and I think he is favorite for silver for here. even though we don't know about Albegov's current shape. but he used to be very good.

I am kinda hoping for Albegov to troll everyone, go full retard in preparation and put up some huge PB's beating Talakadze.

there is no doubt that Armenian weightlifters/coaches acted very dumb here but in their defense, only 1kg was separating gold,silver and bronze medalists yesterday. he was needed 212 for silver. and 213 for the gold. even if I was in his place I would try for 213 to win the whole thing.

Honestly I would have gone for 213 in that third attempt either way, but 212 in the second one. If there was only one attempt left I'd have gone for 213 too.

even his PB is not probably good enough for that. Talakhadze is setting World Record year by year :d

 

but Russian team wasn't good so far. some of them was in Group B which is disastrous for Russia. even Okulov won the gold yetesrday because the level was very poor. maybe being banned for 2 years affected them too much.

yeah but this year is also very important for the Olympic qualification points. there are 3 windows of 6 months and weightlifters have to set at least one big result in each one of those windows.

 

I'm already worried about our weightlifters who missed this competition. I wonder if they know the rules or not. specially for Alihosseini he is probably the only one with a realistic chance of beating Talakhadze.

but the problem for Iran is that (in)famous blacklist of doping cases recorded between 2008 and now...and, if I remember well, Iran is one of those Countries that will be allowed to enter only 1 male athlete in Tokyo (and 1 female, but we all know that there are no female weightliftewrs from Iran ion the international scene)...

if that's the case, I think they already decided to count on the 96kg class and Moradi (who's an almost safe Gold)...

the number of positive tests for Iran is between 10 and 20. so Iran can qualify 2 male and 2 female for Rio. while they started women's weightlifting but this is toooo early for them to even think about the qualification.

 

and believe me our federation is very stupid to have a long term plan like that, they made so many mistakes like this. even here they made a mistake and 3 weightlifters (at least one of them was a clear medal chance ) missed the competition because they didn't know they have to register names at least 3 months before the competition (for doping reasons etc) . I strongly doubt they know the details of qualification system. I will try to contact some of those missing weightlifters to make sure they know the rules. I believe it will be Moradi and Alihosseini for Tokyo but still 2 years is a long time and who knows what will happen.

 

PS: Sohrab Moradi almost missed Rio because of another stupid mistake. instead of 2 yeasr, he served almost 30 months ban for his doping case and only made it to Rio because of special permission from Ajan himself to let him participate at the Pan-Am Championship.

Actually he finished 6th last year :p 

 

Does it say anything about the weight he lifted this year? Because there's no international result available for him anywhere after last year's world champs, and the last one before that is the Olympics, so two competitions in two years is a bit hard to go on. His PB of 440kg, set at last year's world champs, was beaten this year by Lasha Talakhadze (457kg, 477kg last year and very clear favourite now), Behdad Salimi (461kg, but he retired), Saeid Hosseini (456kg, not competing) and Rustan Djangabaev (455kg). @MHSN is definitely the expert here, but my humble opinion is Reis might fight for bronze with mostly Gor Minasyan if the Armenian doesn't do what Armenians do and bomb out with a too high starting weight. Possibly silver, who knows.


He finished fourth in snatch, and for a country with no medals in this sport, big or small, any medal would give him a lot of headlines. Of course a total medal would be amazing, but even a small medal would be great for him by now. His entry weight is 440 kg, I think, but I'm not sure he was able to lift this much this year.

As always I forgot to look at the small medals and standings, sorry :p Probably because I'm never focussed on it when I'm watching weightlifting. Like, I wouldn't call someone world champion if they win snatch or CJ gold but end up 5th or something in the total :d
