What a Cleaner World Championship Means for Weightlifting

The 2017 Weightlifting World Championships in Los Angeles are now history, and they provided a unique opportunity to ponder the future of the weightlifting sport. Typically, the first Worlds after an Olympic Games are a bit of a letdown for the fans. Some of the Olympic medalists will choose to retire, and other top-tier competitors take it easy for the season after the Games. On the positive side, this gives the “B Team” athletes a chance to show the national coaches what they can do on a big stage. On the other hand, both the overall quality and quantity of the meet may sag a bit, as entries are much lower.
