Sumalee Thawornsakteerakul, TV journalist (Thailand):

Mahassen Hala Fattouh, athlete (Lebanon):
- I want to mention that there are two potential winners at 87+ weight category competition. Meng Suping from China and Tatyana Kasharina from Russia. But it is important to remember that we can get unexpected winners at the competition.
Timothy Joel Scott, correspondent of the website (America):
- It is hard to tell who will be the winner before the competition. But I think that the main candidates for the award places are weightlifters from Russia Tatyana Kasharina, Meng Suping from China and Son Younghee from Korea. At the same time other weightlifters can be awarded as well due to their desire to win. The prediction before the competitions is always based on the results that the athlete shows on the previous competitions. For many years I have been reading and learning a lot about the weightlifting from our website. But the competition will define the winner.
Agamyrat Bayramov, TV commentator of «Turkmenistan: Sport» channel (Turkmenistan):
- There are a lot of famous weightlifters among the female weightlifters in high weight category. And it is the prove of how challenging the competition is going to be. Looking back at the previous weightlifters’ results I can say that Tatyana Kasharina from Russia, Meng Suping from China and Kim Kuk Hyang from North Korea are the possible winners of the competition. But it is necessary to mention that the weightlifters from Asian countries show very good results.
