    2012 European Championships Antalya

    You never know what you're going to get with a European Championship. Sometimes countries rest their super stars and send the "B" team in to earn points if they're confident their 2nd string can get it done. It's also a chance for up and comers to get some international experience. Even though you don't always see the biggest weights being lifted, there is typically some good battles. Match-ups to look for here: Răzvan Martin of Romania vs. Alexandru Dudoglo of Moldova in the men's 77kg division. David Bedzhanyan from Russia against fellow countryman Maxim Sheyko in the HW division, and Weightlifting's sweet heart Lidia Valentin of Spain against Russian powerhouse Olga Zubova. This is also the competition that people really started to pay attention to rising start from Azerbaijan Valentin Hristov. The young 56kg lifter easily took first place, and later moved up to the 63kg class, where he crushed all of the junior world records. Unfortunately his rise to Weightlifting stardom has been severly interrupted by a major doping scandal in which nearly a dozen of his fellow countrymen tested positive for Dehydromethyltestosterone
