Many weightlifting records have already been broken this year at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. In the men’s super heavyweight class (+109kg), we expect to see more records shattered as these ultra- strong athletes pursue their goal of winning an Olympic medal for their country. Read below to see our choice of +109kg Group A weightlifters who we think will do well in the finals this summer in Olympics 2020: Super Heavyweight Weightlifting Predictions!
1. Lasha Talakhadze
This Georgian weightlifter seems unbeatable and looks likely to win the super heavyweight class in Tokyo. Earlier this year, he won his class in the European Weightlifting Championships in Moscow, achieving a world record 222kg snatch and an incredible world record total of 485kg.
2. Ali Davoudi
Iran’s Ali Davoudi has a strong chance of standing on the podium in Tokyo. He won the Asian Weightlifting Championships in 2019 and 2020, and has a personal best total of 441kg.
3. Man Asaad
Representing Syria in the Games, Asaad is sure to put in a great performance for his nation. His strength is continuing to improve, and his huge total of 433kg earned him a silver medal at the 2020 Asian Championships held in Uzbekistan this year.
4. Hojamuhammet Toychyyev
His best lifts include a powerful 242kg clean and jerk, and a total of 428kg. This lifter from Turkmenistan is sure to put many of the other lifters in group A under lots of pressure.
