The roids giveth, and the roids taketh...

Kazakh lifters are off that Kazakh potassium

With all my respect, they just demoralized, Iliya Ilin gone drunk for 2 years, because his medals was taken, you can't expect them to be as fit as before.

Yes, they are off-roids, AND they took a very long breaK.
The russians are off roids for the most of them as well, thus Apti Aukhadov totaled 150+188-9 last month in -81. At his peak he was a 170-175+, and regularly C&Jing 212kg. Do the math, you get what loss of strength cutting roids does.

That said, it means anyone close or over 85% of the WR on the C&J is on roids too, that includes westerners like H. Maurus today and B. Hennequin few years ago.

Personally I like my elite lifters on gear, they need a non tested federation like powerlifting .... Imo

Gotta say Rahimov slimming down to 73kg was mighty suspicious by itself. Could it be he has been having trouble retaining muscle mass?

Do we even want to see the sport clean? We all want to see super human feats of strength but that requires super humans. Would the sport actually die if removed from the Olympic Games? In my opinion it’s not a given, it may even make people more interested

Using drugs on ur own is fine, but when u compete in a drug free competition that's not fine, look at powerlifting for example

Every single Olympic Lifter is on roids. You sound delusional and extremely naive. They're genetic monsters which need PEDs to regenerate from the BRUTAL, SAVAGE daily, endless training of massive liftings.

You probably right man, but he could have had injury or something. East didn’t look particularly strong that’s for sure.

But sometimes you sound to butt hurt man. Like US athletes never cheated in anything?!

You can’t deny the fact that East has strong weightlifting culture and top class coaches. Studies that were conducted during the Soviet times are still being implemented. The techniques arguably are superior to the West.

You don’t appear to know much about weightlifting. Trust me, kid, everyone in the olympic level weightlifting uses “vitamins”, and that is the level playing field, where sportsmen compete between each other using PED. Stop talking nonsense :)
