Weightlifting qualification for Lima 2019 Pan American Games

 

Canada :wall: would have qualified a few more athletes had it decided to send more athletes to the qualifiers. 

 

 

I was indeed surprised that Canadian federation didn't send their best athletes to this championships... guess after Toronto 2015, they just started treating Pan Ams below the Commonwealth Games :(

The Canadian Championships were being held at the exact same time... which are used to select the team for the Worlds. However, some of Canada's top athletes competed in DR. 

Looking at the results from 2015, its reasonable to expect three medals for Canada in Lima, even with the reduced team (13 in 2015 vs 4 in 2019). Darsigny, Santavy and Charron all would have won medals in Toronto 2015 with their pb's and by quite a distance at that, so something similar could happen in Lima.

It also comes down to funding. For the CWG's all or most of the weightlifters were ranked in the top 5 (ie fully funded travel). For Pan Ams only the top 2 in each gender (and they must also have 95% of the world champions total) to be funded.

I didn't knew about the Nationals and funding factors... still, hard to miss other opportunities to in a multi-sport event :( but again, every federation and NOC have their priorities.

Egypt’s weightlifting medal contenders could miss Tokyo 2020 because of teenage doping cases

https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1066516/egypts-weightlifting-medal-contenders-could-miss-tokyo-2020-because-of-teenage-doping-cases

 

I'm having a hard time finding out what exactly is the news here...these cases were known, right? And if so, it's not new that Egypt is in danger in terms of 2020?

It only makes sense for a sport with such doping problem to delete the WRs.
