Zelimkhan Khadjiev (France 74kg) and Khasanboy Rakhimov (Uzbekistan 125kg)

Recommended Posts

Just found out today that Khadjiev (FRA) and Rakhimov (UZB) who have officially won Bronze Medals at 2019 World Championships have been stripped. At 125kg, Deng Zhiwei of China becomes the New Bronze Medalist who also won a Silver in 2018. At 74kg, Daniyar Kaisanov of Kazakhstan becomes the new Bronze Medalist. As Kazakhstan already finished 2nd in the team race, it made the points better. Then USA fell from 3rd to 4th, Iran moved from 4th to 3rd.

Something seems to be  missing...where is the gain for Iran to have overtaken the US in the team rankings?

At 125kg, nothing to do with the Uzbek that got stripped of the Bronze as the Iranian was on the opposite side of bracket. However on the Iranians side of bracket, the Syrian that placed 5th (Making it to the Bronze Match) was DQ from his 5th place honors (assuming also doping). With him getting DQ, the Iranian moved into the top 6. Qualifying the weight class for the Olympics and gaining 3 more points for the team. As Iran had 93, USA 94. The 3 extra points got them to 96 Points and getting ahead of USA.
