Check-out Day

 

Russia has consistently built a strong reputation behind their weightlifting athletes and programs. This being said, it’s important to keep in that this year Russia will be sitting out of international competition. Earlier this year in January, the Russian Weightlifting Federation’s president Maxsim Agapitov withdrew their appeal on the federation’s one-year bad from international competition.

In July of 2016, Russia received a one-year ban from the IWF for doping and were barred from the 2016 Rio Olympics. This ban followed the IWF ruling that any country with three or more positive doping tested athletes from the prior two Olympics will receive a one-year ban from international competition.
