    And Chinese nationals were moved to May, likely so their A team can still qualify for the National Games (September).

    No Eko, but on IG he is still training hard. I hope there's nothing wrong, he is staring down the barrel of the very rare group of 4xOlympic medalists.

    Kia Ghadami finally turns up to an international comp.

    Masanori might out C&J his FSQ 1RM

    I hope Yang Zhe snatches 200kg

    Does Li Wenwen go heavy, perhaps not.

    Without North Korea some of the female classes drop a few notches. Really sucks not having Rim Jong Sim and Rim Un Sim

    Number of lifters attending is about 60% of Euros.

    Without North Korea it's very boring in some categories.

    Rostami is an enigma.

    From what I've read Deng Wei, Li Dayin and Tian Tao won't lift near their maxes as they were injured.

    I think Elbakh M102 will try 181/232/413 for two WRs.

    I finally want to see a WR attempt at W87.

    Taiwan is playing with fire again (if anyone remembers the situation before the Sydney Olympics).

    Back in the years 1999-2000 Taiwan had the second best female team, so naturally they qualified a full squad of 4 women for Sydney. However, if you look at the results now you'll notice that only 2 women competed for them. That's because that summer world medalist Wu Mei Yi and world champ Chen Jui Lien were banned for roids, and couldn't even be replaced. So they rather embarrassingly wasted two Olympic places.

    In the last few years all of the best Taiwanese lifters except for Kuo were banned again: Chen Shih Chieh M109+, Lin Tzu Chi W64 and Hsu Shu Ching W55. And they weren't banned like the older Russians, i.e. long after retirement.
    I mainly made that remark because Kuo is lifting more than ever, and she's mildly virilized already. I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't make it to Tokyo.

    If anyone is wondering why Li Fabin yesterday was attempting 176 for a WR instead of 175: the Chinese have set qualifying standards for Tokyo, and in the M61 class the required total is 318. So he tried 142+176 to match that. If he had snatched more he would've taken a different second attempt.

    The other required totals are (the text is Mandarin but the context should be easy to understand):



    Hou Zhihui W49 matched the standard with her WR of 213 while Liao Qiuyun W55 did not.

    However it should be noted that these numbers were derived long before North Korea withdrew, so it's perhaps not so binding any longer as to who gets picked and who gets left behind.

    It's a bit weird that the W87+ qualifying total is set to 335 when the silver medal total in that class is likely to be in the range of 280-290.

    I presume the qualifying total was set when Kashirina was expected to compete.
