Good to have David Goldstrom commentating, I always like his voice with the weightlifting. Not sure who the other woman is.

FYI If for some reason you cant watch some sports via TV you can download the BBC Sports app through Playstaion TV services just like BBC I Player etc.

Had a quick scan through the start lists.

The Home Countries could do well out of this..

By my reckoning (purely based on entry totals, which can mean nothing):

Shaun Clegg (Eng) and Chris Freebury (Eng) in the hunt for a Bronze at 69

Zoe Smith (Eng) battling it out with Michaela Breeze (Wal) for Gold at 58

Sarah Davies (Eng) and Emily Godley (Eng) in the hunt with 3 others for Gold at 63

Jack Oliver (Eng) in the mix for a Bronze at 77

Rebekah Tyler (Eng) in with a chance of Bronze at 69 (at 15 YO!)

Mercy Brown (Eng) snapping at the heals of those fighting for Bronze at 75

Owen Boxall (Eng) and Sonny Webster (Eng) in the mix with Peter Kirkbride (Sco) for Bronze at 94

If the Home Countries can come away with 6 over all medals (or more) I think it would be a resounding success, and hopefully help strengthen BWL's position in their future funding bid!!

I really like the current crop of top lifters we have got in the UK, all credit to them!!!

Good predictions Jeff, I am with you on most of them.

Interestingly Sonny Webster came 4th at Junior Worlds at 94, that is no mean feat.

I actually think Ben Watson is a dark horse in the 105s for a medal.

I think he actually got bumped up to 3rd in the end because of one of the top three providing a positive sample. Very impressive!!

Yeah, it's usually his jerk that lets him down for me; but if he has a blinder and others dont, he could be in with a shout!

No way! That's a big deal. When was the last Junior World medal for England?

I think I must have made that up, as I cant find anything to corroborate my statement.

I think I am confusing myself with his 3rd place at last years European Juniors, which is still a top notch achievement.
