    Klokov Implicated in Trump-Russia Scandal

    Looks like our little Weightlifting community is making some big headlines. Find below both articles claiming Klokov offered to introduce Trump to Putin, as well as Klokov's official response:

    "To the weightlifting community, my fans and supporters:

    I have spent my life as an athlete. Now that I have retired from competition, I work very hard to promote weightlifting, all strength sports and training education through seminars.

    I was very surprised to see my name in the news in America this week, and because the story has so much attention, I want to make this statement for everyone’s understanding.

    I have never communicated with anyone in the Trump organization, including Trump’s family or legal representatives, and specifically the Mr. Cohen who is in the news story. I was very proud to be a part of many Russian national weightlifting teams, but I do not have any inside connections to the Russian government. No part of the story of my involvement with these people is true.

    I am very disappointed that these lies get so much attention in our world today. I hope the weightlifting and sport community will continue to work together with me to make people stronger and healthier through participation in competitive athletics.

    This isn't much for him but more a way for them to add Ivanka into the collusion case which gives them a new angle. Though his aggressive denial is incredibly suspicious especially since journalist don't normally say they have records of emails and a phone call without proof. Though he may not be aware of how American journalism is.

    Exactly. For Klokov there are no repercussions for him saying he'd introduce two people.

    Yeah "I was contacted by the Trumps due to my celebrity" is something easy to shrug off and ignore versus "Everyone is lying and I've never talked to anyone nor do I know anyone in politics" which just makes me cringe. Honestly I'm only interested cause this is some wacky tv show bullshit, I gave up on Klokov almost two years ago as he stopped giving useful information once he transfered over to seminars and crossfit.

    I just strain to wonder how/why Ivanka would go to Klokov... like, how is he on her radar, or what connection is there between them. But i also despise Trump but i don't care if Klokov was gonna link them to the govt for a deal. anyways.

    No, but you're an idiot... the price of marijuana has been steadily dropping over the last 24 months.
