    I would agree to give China a bigger benefit of the doubt due to their history versus Kazakhstan/Thailand/Bulgaria/et al. The Chinese women largely seem to not care much about their appearances,...

    That is noticeable, Thailand levels of virilization. I wonder if they don't care because it is not an Olympic category and therefore China does not bother to send them to any World or Asian...

    They definitely don't but what would be the point in following through with the continentals if there was not some sort of incentive for the Board?

    Only thing that crosses my mind is the IWF makes some profit from the continental championships happening and therefore postponed these updates until each championship was complete.

    Yup, something I notice that just lifts without any accessory exercises resulted in lessened mobility and aches and pains popping up in areas that usually never hurt before. Max strength tanks too. I...

    I always enjoy his stuff but his biases become really prevalent as of late in his writing. Around 2003-2012 he was relatively impartial, yet still highly critical of the US, in his articles and he...

    I was talking to some of my PT friends/lifters and this hot take is dumb. I agree with Bud on most things and him calling Seedman et al snakeoil salesmen is very appropriate, but to assert that...

    I believe it was just obtained from observing the pool of lifters available to them and analyzing the peak velocity. They likely just set everyone near to a checkered wall for scale and used film to...

    Guess it is, since looking at the startlist from 2015 Nationals Cicely Kyle is listed under Power & Grace.

    Alexey Ni needs to be blacklisted the same as Abadjiev was, same could go for Boltaev and his ilk that were training Team Astana. Insta-sanction if training under these groups.

    I would say that Jourdan's performance places her as one of the best US female lifters ever.

    I cannot attest to whether he was completely off the sauce there or taking minimal amounts, these are just numbers from Artie Drechsler and others who were there at the time. Either way, he was not...

    Could also go the "muscle memory" route that she's been permanently enhanced by past anabolic use and is closing in on 95%+ of what they are capable of even without drug use now. We've got two US...

    Kuo was much more virilized back in 2012 than she is today. Her voice is more feminine now than back then too.

    I believe K. Asanidze is Georgi's son as well as another brother who lifts (Saba).

    He looks exactly like Angel when he shaved his head in 1987, I'm just making a strong association between lifting and the name. I wonder if Hristov in the 109s has any relation to the Hristov from...

    Seriously looks as if Bulgaria put all of their drugs into this kid's results versus any of their other lifters in the 61/67. Anyone notice that Angel Genchev's son is lifting in his old category?

    I prefer this forum over Reddit when it comes to creating actual discussion. Reddit can often turn into meme/shitposting within a thread rather than stoking actual discussion.

    Thanks for the correction; I was only going by what I recall off the top of my head. Did not realize Taranenko's 266 was done post-Olympics, and for some reason I had believed Daniel Nunez had done a...

    One reason to keep in mind is that drug testing has been implemented since the 70s but only in competition. In many cases the medalists were not tested despite winning or setting records. Out of...
