And then I take a step back and think "Do I actually even care that weightlifting is a bit s**t to watch"?

And the answer is NO to be honest ... I don't .

I actually think there should be more rules . And it should be more about the refs .

One things for sure if someone decides to retire and takes off their lifting shoes and leaves them on the platform they should be banned for life . Don't let them t**ts have their moment .

Long live the purist

At what point during this post did I realise it was sarcastic...... quite embarassed at how far I got. I was on board until you said it should be more about the refs and was wondering what additional rules you wanted to see.

No sarcasm at all mate ..

I think we should come up with some on here and pass them over to the guys at IWF .

I don't like how they land in a squat position, it resembles powerlifting too much . I would like to see like a jerk style position on the snatch and clean ... one foot lands in front and one behind (somewhere Confused )

Hook grip ban ?

Lifting boots should have raised toes instead of heels.

Get rid of sinclair, far too complicated.

The new formula is total divided by bodyweight.

No, this has been f**king over the big guys for too long.

Total MULTIPLIED by bodyweight.

Were we watching the same competition, or is this all about a certain bomb out?

Actually, forget the total.

We'll just have a game of "the biggest".

I've been watching Olympic weightlifting since the 1993 world championships .. I've watched a lot of competitions . It's a well calculated view I have on weightlifting based on everything I've seen in my life .

I don't know you . your probably a lovely chap . It doesn't change my view though mate . One I'm entitled too, I think . After all my mother in law watched some of the Commonwealth Games(first time viewer) and is allowed a view .

Are you telling me I'm not allowed to have one ?

And the "certain bomber" comment has me totally confused ?

Elaborate please my friend ?

I've been watching weightlifting since the 1988 Europeans in Cardiff - do I win that one, or can we just agree that after watching it for a few years you know what you're looking at?

When you first posted I'd assumed you were talking about the knee touch that potentially decided a gold medal and had completely forgotten that your Brother bombed due to what appeared to be not getting the feet in line, which I gathered you were referring to above.

I understand the frustration, all those hours for no payoff this time, and of course you are allowed to have an opinion on it. It just seemed strange that there we all were saying how much we enjoyed the competition and then you come on saying weightlifting is s**t and the officials were all assholes. As Shaun's coach, do you think anyone reading this isn't going to put those two together, whether you meant it that way or not?

It has got absolutely f**k all to do with Shaun . You a million miles off the mark BUT maybe you are trying to spark a response off me for some reason .. I actually agree with that ref decision and he only has his self to blame about that particular lift . I carry the responsibility of his build up not going to plan and sending him down to 69 which in hind-site was a mistake on my part .

In football they always say a referee has has a great performance when you forgot who the Ref actually was .

Same applies here "In my opinion"

I bores me - the inconsistency in refereeing about tiny press outs and the such .. It needs updating from IWF HQ and help the refs make better decisions .

That's my last post on this thread .

Chris I will say this as well, it has nothing to do with Shaun's bomb - it was ore about the elbow touch guy who won the 94s, that was the original topic, nothing to do with Shaun getting "robbed".

There's an article I've just read from the BBC news website linked off my Facebook about an Australian weightlifter having a fight in the athletes village

Not good news for the sport or the friendely games unfortunately

I think the lifter is actually from CMR originally but I may be wrong
