Weightlifter Sopita Thanasan from Thailand won the gold medal in the 53 kg weight category at the World Championships in Anaheim, USA.


The Thai athlete, following the results of two exercises (snatch - 96, clean and jerk - 114), took a total weight of 210 kg. The silver medalist was Kristina Shermetova from Turkmenistan - 204 kg (91+113), the bronze medal was won by Diaz Hidilin from the Philippines - 199 kg (86+113).

Russian weightlifters do not compete at the World Championships in Anaheim. In September, the executive committee of the International Weightlifting Federation suspended the weightlifting federations of Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, China, Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine for a year from international competitions due to anti-doping rule violations. Representatives of these countries cannot participate in international competitions until October 20, 2018.
