good news, but let not Forget that lot of strong weightlifting nations were banned:

this is the list of the banned countries:
Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Turkey, Moldova, Ukraine, Belarus and Azerbaijan.

I think under such circumstances IRAN actually could maybe have won more medals

Why were these countries banned? Doping issue?

well the reasons are always related to dopings..and I'm not defending dopping..but very often international organizations are dominated by some western countries and since Russia was in Ukraine and Syria very active to stop West & NATO, they seem to be agaian and again banned (now the entire Russian winter team has been banned from winter olympics).. and sure some Russians were maybe on doping (but do you really believe that no Western Sportmen would be on dopping?)

some US-athletes even died very early on some type of cancer, which often caused by dopping, but you never would see an American team would be banned...

in Today world there are very big double standards
