2021 IWF World Championships Results

The 2021 IWF World Championships were highlighted by Lasha Talakhadze's historic record-breaking performance.

The 2021 International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) World Championships took place in Tashkent, Uzbekistan from Dec. 7-17, 2021, and featured a bounty of world records. The story entering the contest was the withdrawal of the Chinese weightlifting team due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which opened the door of opportunity for several athletes to reach the top of the podium.

The highlights of the competition were the world records set by Lasha Talakhadze of Georgia, who furthered the all-time heaviest snatch, clean & jerk, and total in the +109-kilogram weight class. Additionally, Lesman Paredes Montaño of Colombia hit a new world record snatch at 96-kilograms en route to gold and 17-year-old Karlos Nasar broke five records with his all-time heaviest clean & jerk of 208 kilograms (458.5 pounds) at 81-kilograms. Check out the full results below.
