Comparative Chart of the EWC and AWC results

Media experts and international weightlifting specialists are analyzing the results of the European Championships and the Asian Championships in order to make a comparison between the two events held at the same time; on two different continents; with different Technical Officials. In order to facilitate the work of professional analyzers, the IWF decided to produce a Comparative Chart with combined results for both events. Complementary information in regard to the previous gold medallists of the 2008 Olympic Games Beijing, 2009 WWC Goyang and 2010 WWC Antalya were added. This study gives useful data for the preparation period of the upcoming 2011 World Championships held in Paris, France and the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 2011 European Championships held in Kazan, Russia attracted 72 Women and 114 Men lifters, which means a Total of 186 competing athletes. The 2011 Asian Weightlifting Championships Tongling, China involved a relatively small number of participants. Only 94 athletes competed at the event (35 Women and 59 Men). The high level competitions meet the expectations of World Championships.Both competitions were organized with outstanding standards of professionalism; but maybe the difficulties to reach the city of Tongling for the National Federations willing to participate in the Asian Competition resulted in the lower participation. With only 1 year left before the London 2012 Olympic Games, all National Federations' priority is to build up their National Team. The Comparative Chart enables National Federations' Leaders to draw their conclusions in regard to their preparation strategy for the last step of Team Qualification - the 2011 World Championships Paris.
