European Championship is over

We could watch weightlifters from whole Europe during the first half of April at the Weightlifting European Championship. There were a lot of amazing performances and we will try to summarize them in this article. It was a championship without fans and it was very seeable in the atmosphere. Even though we could see incredible numbers.

ME 2021 weightlifting Moscow


Toma Loredana from Romania lifted 114 kg on snatch and set a new European record in this discipline in category U64 kg.


Another women's show was in the super heavy category, where Emily Campbell from Great Britain won with a 24 kg difference between first and second place. Especially her clean and jerk was stunning, she lifted 154 kg.
We watched an almost never-ending fight in category U87 kg, where two competitors (Daria Akhmerova from Russia and Elena Cilcic from Moldova lifted the same weight in clean and Jerk 138kg, but better snatch for Daria Akhmerova made a difference and gave her gold medal in total.


It was quite opposite in category U59 kg were clean and jerk was a difference between first and second. 116 kg from Boyanka Kostova from Azerbaijan gave her gold medal ahead of Olga Te from Russia.

We witnessed absolute dominance by Lasha Talakhadze between men. Legendary weightlifter from Georgia set a new world record in snatch when he lifted 222 kg.  This lift together with 263 kg on Clean and jerk gave him another European title and new world record in total. (485 kg)
Another amazing performance showed Gor Minasyan. His third attempt in snatch was almost power snatch and he lifted 216 kg. It is a big shame, that we probably won't see him at Olympic Games because Armenia will have only one lifter there.


The big surprise was category U109 kg where we expected big numbers from Simon Martirosyan, but he failed every clean and jerk attempt and was not even classified in the competition because of that.
Dmytro Chumak from Ukraine took the gold medal.
A great show was in category U96 kg. Anton Pliesnoi from Georgia hit 180 kg snatch and 213 kg clean and jerk, which gave him a European title with a big difference between first and second position.
One of the greatest competitions was in category U81 kg.
We were expecting big numbers from Ritvars Suharevs, but unfortunately, this competition was not one of his best. Even though, we watched one of the best clean and jerk competitions in the last 5 years.
Nino Pizzolato from Italy and 17 years old Karlos Nasar from Bulgaria made their two-man show. Both lifters hit 206 kg on clean and jerk, which is the weight with which they will be able to compete with legendary Lu Xiaojun from China. Nino and Karlos are both really young, so we can expect the big things in the future.


Daniyar Ismaylov from Turkey set a new European record on snatch with 160 kg in the U73 kg category.
Clean and jerk was not so successful but even though 181 kg gave him the gold medal in total.
Kamil Kučera was the best Czech republic weightlifter in this championship. He was sixth and hit 182 kg on snatch and 233 kg on clean and jerk.
Jiri Orsag was ninth with 170 kg snatch and 232 clean and jerk.
