2015 World Championship: Women, 63KG


The 7th world record has been set at the 2015 World Championship in Houston, Texas when 22-year-old Wei Deng of China lifted  146KG in the clean-and-jerk part of the competition.

Deng won gold in the snatch, clean-and-jerk and total. Tima Turieva of Russia won a silver medal with 248KG total and Hyo Sim Choe, North Korea lifted 243KG total for the third place.

Medals go to winners from the IWF.

Yellow roses go to winners from Texas.

Respect and congrats go to winners from us at Chidlovski Blog Chidlovski.

And now all together:

There’s a yellow rose in Texas, that I am going to see,

Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me.

She cried so when I left her, it like to broke my heart,

And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.

Congrats again!

Will Yellow Rose Of Texas Grow In Russia?


21-year-0ld Artem Okulov from the city of Perm, Russia became a world champion in the 85KG class at 2015 IWF World Championship in Texas.

Kianoush Rostami from Iran took a silver medal with 381 KG total and Apti Ukhadov of Russia won a bronze medal with 380KG total.

Very much like in the previous day in the 77KG class, this weight class was packed with potential contenders for the world title. Tao Tian, China had the highest entry total of 385KG. Okulov (383KG), Uukhadov (382), Peleshenko (Ukraine, 380KG), Asayonak (Belarus, 381KG)… All of them had a decent shot at the medal stand.

Tao Tian won the snatch program and went on for expected medal set in the clean-and-jerk. However, very much like his teammate in the middleweight last night, Tian failed to lift an opening weight and didn’t qualify in the total. Both chinese athletes,  Xiaojun Lu and Tao Tian, are superior squat-style jerk lifter and both bombed out at this championship.

Top place on the podium is never empty. This time it was taken by Artem Okulov who was truly a clutch lifter today. The champions and medalists in Houston this year get a yellow rose of Texas. Will these yellow rose of Texas grow in Russia? Will they turn in a yellow rose garden next year in Rio?
