    Other sports have had teams be punished for the behaviour of their fans. I think it behooves the IWF at this point to at the very least wag their finger at Iran. This shit has been going on for way too long.

    It was outrageous being there. The fans were quite obnoxious and the vast majority of them were not even familiar with weightlifting. Literally every native Iranian in the area came to the venue. They're just a very proud people. They are not familiar with the sport. They see their athlete get the barbell overhead like everyone else but can't understand why it was turned down or overruled. After each lift I checked the IWF and other instagrams to see the posts flooded with comments.

    They were horrendous, it was so loud after Salimi's third attempt. We were super proud of Seim for making that final jerk. Fernando's mother was in front of us and screaming and cursing with joy. She screamed at the Iranians they were being crybabies. We almost bolted after that.

    If you were to the left of the stage during the 105s with two women, my fiancé and I sat next to you guys.
