Updated start list in weightlifting

http://www.iwf.net/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2016/08/Rio2016_List-of-Athletes-by-Event_Updated_01082016.pdf

 

China added Meng Suping (instead of their 48kg weightlifter)!

 

Mirabai's chances improve, right? @nitinsanker

Yes, it does. But she must lift 194kgs+; at the Olympics it should be 198kg++ to be sure. To top it off, she needs to remove mental pressure of the Olympics

Sorry for being negative, but I am disappointed in AFI. They should know that there is no concept of wild card in Athletics. There is just Universality quotas (1 per gender) for those NOCs who have qualified 0 athletes. India, luckily, is not eligible for Universality quota in Athletics.

I saw in Totallympics that Fatma El Shernoubi of Egypt received wild card in womens 1500 m athletics. Egypt also has 4 more participants in athletics. Can you explain what kind of quota is that?

Narsingh Yadav is currently ranked no.3 in FILA World Rankings.What are his chances of winning a medal guys?

His chances are very good. He won a bronze in the world championships. If the draw is good, he could go one step better. Beating the great Jordan Burroughs would be very difficult.

Universality quota. No Egyptian women qualified and hence they were eligible for one quota in women's section.

Thats Big bro ..................... significantly makes  a difference between a medal and coming 4th because any day the chinese would have beaten mirakhom ...............

 

Currently if you look at the last couple of years records comparing with mirakhoms olympic trial weight of 192 with the rest............... There is no PRK and CHN .. which means there are only two 48 kg weightlifters who have beaten that weight JPN hiroke( 194 )  and VIE  Voung ( 193) ...from that angle she is a medal hopful but the INA Agustiani ( 191 ) and TPE Chen with ( 191 ) are also lifting almost in the same range ........but the lady who worries me the most is Thanasan of THA she has come down from a 53 weight and has lifted 210 last year and thailand have preferred her over khamsri panida who has been lifting 194 herself ...so she is going to be I am sure in medal contention and more KAZ margarita also has come down one weight class she has been lifting 202 in 53 weight category but I am sure will come down at least 10-12 kgs so she will also be at 190 or so I feel and also UKR paratova whoi has lifted 200 but is coming down to the lower weight class which mean she would also lose at least 10-12 kgs and be at 185-190....

 

so this is the super pool ........IND, JPN, VIE, INA,TPE, THA, KAZ, UKR ................... it can be anybodies game , I feel that THA Thanasan may be the GOLD medal prospect unless she has last minute weight issues and is weak............The fact that the CHI removed their weightlofter is possibly they figure that thanasan may be lifting above theirs or very close where they may not win a gold...remember china get only 4 lifters in women and they would hope for 4 Gold ........................The rest will be depending on their performance on the day ....a medal upto silver is possible by Mirakhom now that the chinese has moved out  ...... I feel a 194-195 lift will medal her which is well within her capability ................

 

Interesting shiva s weigtht category is the slimmest with just 13 ...of course he cannot medal but he can look to come in the top 8 which is a good result for him .......KAZ, EGY, ARM, THA, PRK , CHN will surely beat him but he can beat the rest on his day so a top  8 is possible with this draw .......

 

good final list on the whole in weight lifiting ...............
