Hmm, D unno if my memory is playing tricks on me , but did"nt you mention a weightlifting event where the top medal prospects got eliminated and thwe gold medal winner was only an outside chance of getting the bronze?You gotta love how Westerners puff themselves up over the smallest achievements LOL. I just got recommended a YouTube video titled, "Italy's Legend and Big Hope: Antonino Pizzolato's on His Way to Triumph in Paris." I'm thinking, there is no medal threat from Italy I know of, so I looked up his medals record: 1 bronze World's + 1 bronze Olympic. Only golds are from European comps. They call this dude a legend LOLOL. They say he can win in Paris, yeah, if the top 6 other people including both Chinese lifters get injured and pull out LOL. On top of that, this dude himself is currently injured!
