2015 World Youth Weightlifting Championships Lima, Peru Expectations from Asian lifters was much higher

2015.4.15

2015 World Youth Weightlifting Championships has recently been in Lima,Peru. It is worth pointing out that compared to the 2nd Youth Olympic Games which was held in Nanjing ,China last year, the qualitative level of this year competitions was much lower and the number of participating athletes specifically in Men’s class couldn’t fulfill the expectations.There were 99 Youth girl lifters and 90 Youth Boys lifters participating in the above competitions from 28 different countries throughout the world. Overall 33 representatives of the participating countries competed with their rivals in both Men and Women’s section .The participating teams such as USA, Russia and Peru were the countries that attended the competitions with 15 lifters.

It should be mentioned that 53 Asian weightlifters were present in the World Youth championships that 26 of them were girls and 27 of them were Boys. Iraq was the only Arab team participated in the championships with 1 boy athlete. Chinese Taipei entered the competitions with 9 lifters which was the only Asian Team having the highest number of athletes among other Asian countries. This indicates that Asian countries didn’t take 2015 World Youth Championships seriously. Concerning achieving the result and medal, if we put the Chinese athletes aside who always make success, we should confess and admit that Kazakhstani and Vietnamese lifters had relatively an acceptable performance and some single medals won by the lifters from South Korea, Thailand and Chinese Taipei. In Women’s team classification , Chinese Youth Girls consisting of 5 lifters resolutely succeeded to win the first winning title by obtaining 395 points in a very close and intensive competition with Russian athletes . On the other hand, in Men’s team classification, Mexico team stood on the first winning place by collecting 441 points and South Korea team won the best team title among Asian countries with 281 points. China made use of only 2 Boy lifters that both of them stood on the first winning position.

On the whole, it should be said that in comparison with previous competitions,Asian athletes were not able to reiterate their previous success and prosperity at 2015 World Youth Weightlifting Championships and didn’t realize the expectations

While Arab countries in Asia are expected to at least be more active and attend international competitions much more seriously such as their peers from Egypt and Algeria taking the route which countries like India has already taken . Otherwise , all power in Asia will only be limited to South East Asian countries and partly central Asian countries and a large population of this vast continent in practice will have no portion and share in achieving the world honors and successes .
