With the support of our government, we are also accepting the world first among adults for the first time. About 500 athletes from more than 80 countries are expected to participate in the competition. I would also like to express my special gratitude to the Ministry of Tourism and sports, the Ministry of Health and the National Olympiad for the great assistance in organizational work. The reason for the quarantine requirements in their countries was that China, Italy, Fiji and some other countries could not participate in the competition. However, this situation does not have any negative impact on its reputation. Another important aspect is that we also invited such veterans as Nail Mukhamedyarov, Sergey Sirsov, winners of the Olympiad, who worked in Uzbek weightlifting competition within the framework of the championship," Shahrullo Mahmudov said.
