The question of who will be the new champion among female weightlifters in the weight category of more than 87 kg weight category increases the curiosity of the spectators at the World Championships in Ashgabat.
Spectators assume that the fight for the gold medal will be among two major candidates: the three-time vice champion and Olympic Games champion Suping Meng from China versus the four-time gold medalist at the World Championships and seven-time gold medalist at the European Championships Tatyana Kashirina from Russia.
Another potential candidate is Kim Kuk Hyang from North Korea, the silver medalist at the Rio Olympic Games, who was competing for the gold medal in several Asian Games. We shall note that there are many other athletes wishing to stand on the platform at the victory ceremony.
With the introduction of new weight categories, it is hard to predict winners. That is why we will get answers after today’s competitions.
