    WL at the 14th National Games of China (2021)

    The "Chinese Olympics" aka National Games are upon us which are traditionally held in the year after the Olympics. Since Tokyo was delayed, for the first time these two multi sport games coincide in a calender year.

    WL events will take place in Shaanxi province from September 16th to 24th. Note that all official documentation is in Chinese.

    About 220 lifters will compete in 7+7 Olympic categories. Every Chinese weightlifter from Tokyo will appear here again, alongside those who didn't make the team like Deng Wei, Zhang Wangli, Tian Tao or Yang Zhe.

    There's a high probability we'll see winning totals that surpass the respective Tokyo Gold in four to six categories. We will likely also see a few WR attempts.

    Lyu Xiaojun is the oldest entry by respectable five years; he's also 21 (!) years older than the youngest lifter (*2005).

    Is there a schedule? I tried looking on the site but I don't know if it's unavailable at present or if I'm stupid. I'm using Google Translate to English so that may affect it.

    Ah yes. The real Olympics.
    49s were fun. Got to watch Hou Zhihui and Jiang Huihua battle it out and push each other - a bit disappointed that Jiang missed her 3rd attempt on 120 for a 1kg unofficial WR, but it's part of the game.


    55s were an absolute riot.

    Olympic team member and 2nd place Liao Qiuyun placing 9th, Olympic hopeful and Rio Olympian Li Yajun placing 13th. Su Tingting wins with 225, Yu Linglong takes 2nd with 223. Liao Qiuyun looks like she's still suffering pretty badly with that knee injury especially in the absence of time off post Olympic cycle. Li Yajun looks completely lost. I wonder if Yajun has been injured. She's always been a bit mercurial on the big platform, but qualitatively something looks quite off with her lifting.

    I expect we'll see more of Su Tingting and Yu Linglong in the future.

    The highlight for me was junior Long Xue (*2003) cleaning 2kg over WR, twice.
    Liao should rest and not be sent to Worlds.

    Olympics vs China is brutal, especially if we look at median podium totals.
