Weightlifting at the 2020 Summer Olympics – Simulation:  

Just throw away this sport from Olympics already and we would have way more free quotas for other sports.

If someone takes a look at the IWF calendar , there is no qualification event left in the calendar except the continental championships. (the last one was a tournament in Colombia which is cancelled/postponed now)


even those continental champs are not a sure thing considering the pandemic but if nothing else happens only 1 event is left for each athlete to collect more points! the calendar actually says the Oceania "senior" championships will be held in August !! (after the Olympics) , per new rules, particiatping in one event in 2021 is mandatory for everybody, so I don't know what Oceania athletes are going to do ! and some guys like Om Yun-chol needed to participate in 2 events to be eligible. so technically he is out of the Olympics.


but I expect to see some major changes in the qualification rules. this is not going to work.


PS: IWF sucks but we knew it for so many years. :thumbdown:
