Weightlifting / Qerimaj closes the third in battery B, Godelli is injured and

Weightlifter Erkand Qerimaj made a good competition yesterday and managed to show once again that despite his age he maintains stable results in international competitions. Although he was far from his best results, it seems that Qerimaj did his job properly to represent the red and black jersey with dignity in such an activity as the European Weightlifting Championship. He competed in the 81kg B weight battery, performing 3 accurate detachment tests culminating in 156kg, a position that gave him second place in this battery. In the push style, Shkodra lifted 180 kg in the first test, but failed with 184 and 185 kg in the other two tests, consequently closing the race with 336 kg and in third place in this battery. However, with this result he does not secure enough points to participate in the Olympics. However, Qerimaj can try until the summer in any other activity worth points to enable this. "The race is over, I was ranked 2nd in detachment and 3rd in doubles on my battery! Considering the injury to the elbow, I consider the race a success, even though I came out unharmed! Thank you very much for your support, my lovers ", writes Qerimaj. In the end he was ranked 9th in this championship after merging two batteries. Meanwhile, Daniel Godelli failed in battery A, as he could not be classified in any style and consequently remained out of the ranking in doubles. Godelli started his race with a weight of 152 kg in detachment style. He failed to lift him in the first and second test and then withdrew from the race. At first it seemed that he would compete in push-up style as well, but he did not enter the race at all, retreating. Apparently from some injury. For our representative team, the last to climb the podium in this activity is Krenar Shoraj, who will compete today in battery A in body weight 89 kg. He has a chance to enter the medal zone. It should be said that the Albanian weightlifting has so far secured 3 medals from the European in Moscow. Evangeleli Veli received a bronze medal in the women and Briken Calja received a silver and a bronze medal in the men.
