About the IWF World Championships
The World Weightlifting Championships for Men have existed since 1891 and the World Weightlifting Championships for Women since 1987. The organisation and control of the event is the responsibility of the International Weightlifting Federation.
Frequency of the event
The World Championships have been held annually since 1937, with the suspension of the competitions between 1939 and 1945 due to the Second World War. Only in the years of the Summer Olympics are there generally no World Championships. The women’s competitions introduced in 1987 were an exception until they were finally included in the Olympic programme in 2000. At the six games between 1964 and 1984, the Olympic weightlifting competitions had simultaneous World Championship status.
While the number of weight classes among men was successively increased from three to ten between 1913 and 1977, the number of classes was reduced again in 1998. This was in view of the upcoming Summer Olympics in Sydney, where women’s weightlifting was to celebrate its premiere. Currently, men compete in eight and women in seven different weight classes.
Moderate World Championship kick-off for German weightlifters
The eleven-member German team has to settle for a 24th place at the start of the Weightlifting World Championships in the Turkmen capital Aschchabad.
Junior Vice World Champion Jon Luke Mau from Schwedt came in the weight class up to 61 kilograms to 256 (snatch 112/blow 144) kilograms in the total. The 20-year-old sports soldier has just completed his basic training with the German Armed Forces and was only able to train at a reduced level. At the U20 World Championships in Tashkent four months ago, he managed 278 kilos in the total.
Simon Brandhuber from Roding managed 306 kilograms in the 67-kilo class (snatch 146/kick 160). In the snatch he set a personal best with 146 kilos. His placement will only be decided after the A-group competition on Sunday. Vice European Champion Robert Joachim disappointed in the 73-kilo category. The 31-year-old mastered 304 (133/171) kilos. His best performance in the old 69-kilo limit is 317 (141/176) kilograms. In his class, too, the medal finale will not take place until Sunday.
