Where can the (official) results, start lists and stuff like that be found?

it seems the King of doping, ilya Ilyin will comeback to the competition for the World Championship this year ! he will participate at the non-Olympic weight of 102kg !

 

Speaking of the World Championship, Iran will have a very weak team this time. out of our World/Olympic Champions. Salimi announced retirement (at the age of 29) after the Asian Games, the idiot genius Rostami will take a break, Saeid Mohammadpour was injured the whole year (I think he is done with weightlifting after back to back injuries) and Saeid Alihosseini is a bit injured. so looks like Sohrab Moradi is the only big name remaining.

 

we were VERY upset when IWF announced the new Olympic qualification system which limits Iran to only 2 weightlifters ! (even though IWF is going to review that later this year but probably no change) but it seems after all we won't have more than two competitive weightlifters when it comes to Tokyo :d

I don't follow this sport so I'm confused now: if he's a repeated doper, why has he not been banned for life?

If I'm not mistaken it counts as one offence (the issue with Ilin is that both his samples from 2008 and 2012, both Olympic gold medals for him, turned out dirty two years ago). Or more specifically, as one suspension, and one can't immediately get banned for the first suspension.

well this is how IWF explaining it

https://www.iwf.net/2018/01/23/iwf-sanction-ilya-ilyin-maximum-allowed-world-anti-doping-code/

 

and funny that he didn't lose any other medal except only 2 Olympic gold medals.he didn't lose his world records as well.

 

I admit he is a cool guy. and a great weightlifter (despite his doping story) but everybody knew there is something wrong about him. in 2015 he didn't go to USA for the World Championships instead he went to a low level competition in Russia (only few days after the Worlds) and broke the World Record there ! if he was that ready why not breaking the World Record in the World Championship ?! the answer was easy, he didn't want to take a test in USA.
