Beijing-2008 Olympic Champion Andrey Aryamnov has returned successfully after a four-year break, taking first place in the snatch, lifting 184kg. In the jerk, he lifted 212kg, taking third place overall (lifting a total of 396kg) and claiming bronze, in the under 105kg category double-event.

Before his appearance at the 93rd European Weightlifting Championship, the Borisov athlete last took part in the 2010 European Championship, in Minsk. He was disqualified for doping and hasn’t appeared at any major events since then: also due to injury. Dina Sazanovets lifted a total of 245kg across the two events, and takes the European Championship title. This is her first such gold, although she won silver at a similar tournament in Albania last year, lifting 252kg (112kg+140kg). At the 2013 World Championship in Poland, she lifted an impressive 259kg (116kg+143kg) to take bronze. Stanislav Chadovich (under 62kg) claimed silver, lifting 293kg (135kg+158kg).

However, the 2014 European Championship isn’t part of the qualification series for places at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro; this year’s World Championship, scheduled for November, will see points earned towards placement.
