Moscow to host 2020 European Weightlifting Championships

On the 19th of October, the decision was announced at the European Weightlifting Federation Annual Congress in Zamosc in Poland.

Maxim Agapitov, Russian Weightlifting Federation President, hailed the decision to award the Championships to Moscow. The capital hasn’t held them since 1983.

Agapitov told TASS, Russia’s official state news agency that the 2020 European Weightlifting Championship will be the most important weightlifting event after the Olympics, and it will qualify the 2020 Games in Tokyo.

He also noticed that it is very important for their country to have a tournament of such a high level in these very difficult economic and political conditions.

In 2011, the Championships have been staged in Kazan. The decision to conduct the vent in Moscow is to attract criticism, taking into account that it coincided with the day when Russia’s one-year ban was lifted.

Along with Russia, eight more countries were banned, including China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Belarus, Turkey, Moldova, and Azerbaijan last year by the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) for multiple positive results in retesting of doping samples from the Olympic Games from Beijing and London in the years 2008 and 2012 respectively.

On the 19th of October, the suspension was due to end.

Russia already missed last year’s World Championships in Anaheim in California due to suspension from the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The European Junior Championships started in Zamosc on the 20th of October, and Russian weightlifters made their return to that international competition.

Top weightlifters from Russia are also expected to participate at this year’s World Championships in Ashgabat in Turkmenistan, which is to take place from November 1st to November 10th.

Maxim Agapitov told TASS: “The term of our disqualification will end on October 19, it will happen without any preconditions”. The EWF didn’t respond to his comment.
