The 2017 World Weightlifting Championships were held in Anaheim, California, United States from 28 November to 5 December 2017.[1][2] This amazing event was managed by USA Weightlifting, the IWF, and Sports Anaheim. The staff included Pedro Maloni as the Director of Events, Spencer Molnar Sales Manager, and many more great staff members.

Doping bans

Nine countries were banned from competing at the World Championships due to their history of doping at previous Olympic Games, under International Weightlifting Federation rules stating that any country that had three positive tests uncovered by the International Olympic Committee during re-testing of stored urine samples for banned substances from the 2008 and 2012 Olympics would be banned.

The banned countries were: Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Turkey, Moldova, Ukraine, Belarus and Azerbaijan.[3]

Boycott

North Korea and Venezuela boycotted the World Championships due to the crises in relations between the United States and these countries.[4] The World Championships organizing committee had said it did not foresee any visa problems for the North Korean team.[5]
