Tatiana Kashirina from Russia Wins 5th World Championship Title

Russia’s Tatiana Kashirina returned to an impressive form after an absence of several years from the world stage. At the Weightlifting World Championships 2018, she won all three disciplines and took her fifth overall title at the competition.

The 2018 Weightlifting World Championships took place in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan and concluded on the 10th of November.

27-year-old Kashirina was the World Champion in 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2015. At the 2009 and 2011 World Championships, as well as at the 2012 London Olympic Games, Tatiana was a silver medalist.

Kashirina along with other top Russian lifters didn’t compete in the World Championships last year because of the Russian weightlifting’s international competition ban. They were also banned from competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics because of the repeated doping rule violations.

Tatiana Kashirina finished with a 145kg snatch, 185kg clean&jerk, and 330kg total in her pretty light bodyweight of 107.60kg in the Women’s +87kg weight category. All of those are new world records in the bodyweight categories approved this year.

Kashirina’s performance was summed up by the IWF’s official as follows:


Kashirina’s performance was amazing; however, Meng Suping from China also impressed everyone and finished just two kg back in the snatch and one kg back in the jerk. Unfortunately, Suping missed her 188 clean&jerk which would have brought her two gold medals. Anyways, before Kashirina overtook her, Suping set her own world record in the clean&jerk. Duangaksorn Chaidee from Thailand finished third. Kim Kuk-hyang from PRK was third in the snatch for a bronze medal in the discipline.

Last year’s World Champion in Anaheim American Sarah Robles finished with a 290kg total for fifth overall, which made a new American Record total and Pan American records in the total and clean&jerk.
