    PSA: there's a two day pause on July 29-30. Don't be surprised if WL doesn't show up in local TV/stream programming on those days.

    Do you know if the weightlifting sessions will be broadcasted on Eurosport? I'm not expecting my national broadcaster to do it...

    You should check if Eurosport has the rights in your country.

    If they do it'll very likely be available via the Eurosport player (subscription).

    Thanks erpel, appreciate this thread. Hope I'll be able to watch the recorded sessions without running into spoilers.

    In case people are wondering how the competition will be modified to minimise the risk of covid transmission, here are the details:

    A curious note I found while clicking through some lifters, this is for Luis Mosquera COL:

    He finished fourth in the 69kg category at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but was upgraded to third and a bronze medal when Kyrgyzstani athlete Izzat Artykov was disqualified after testing positive for a prohibited substance. Mosquera was presented with the medal in March 2019 by the Colombian Olympic Committee. "I feel very proud. We were waiting for this medal and it has finally arrived."
    https://www.elheraldo.co/deportes/lu...artykov-613390

    Artykov was positive immediately, this wasn't a re-test. How did it take over two years to get this medal!? I just looked up the dates: the category was on August 9, the announcement on August 18.

    It may have taken two years before Artykov and/or the Kyrgyzstan Olympic Committee returned the original medal. I can remember reading about one sad case where a Cuban athlete sold their Olympic medal to a collector on EBay and had no way of getting it back when they failed a re-test many years later.

    As an slightly esoteric aside, the usual way of telling whether the original medal is being presented is to check whether it still has the original event ribbon. The IOC has the ability to re-create replacement medals using the original casting moulds - but they will not replace the medal ribbons.

    How many repeat medalists from Rio will we see?

    On the women's side, not very many. Maybe Kuo and Robles. On the men's side Eko, Shi, Martirosyan and Lasha. That's about it.

    I would expect Lyu Xiaojun to be a repeat medalist from Rio.
