Hungarian Péter Nagy winds up WUWC 2014 with last victory

In what was a competition taking many unexpected turns, Turkish Resul ELVAN finally emerged victorious in total. However, the first gold medal in snatch went to Radoslav TATARCIK of Slovakia and the second, in clean and jerk, and with that the third, in total, was earned by the Turk thanks to his superior performance of 202kg, while Korea pocketed two more silver medals.

Thailand’s recent World Championship bronze medallist, Chitchanok PULSABSAKUL, fortified with her teammate and fourth-placed Praenapa KHENJANTUEK left little room for others on the podium and little doubt about who will win the top positions in the women’s +75kg category. With their world class performance they put the crown not only on Thailand’s overall performance but the whole World University Championships in Chiang Mai.

Since 2008, Péter NAGY, Hungarian superheavy champion has been collecting the available University titles, including that of Universiade champion (2011) and now, at his last competition of this kind, he grabbed nothing less than the WUWC 2014 Champion title once again. His supremacy in the +105kg could not be questioned, whereby he was unsuccessfully challenged by two Koreans in the clean and jerk who were eventually happy to share the dais with him.

The WUWC 2014 came to an end in Chang Mai after 4 days of exciting and high standard competitions. Many congratulations to the participating athletes and thanks to the hosts!
