Caruso and Weller Tune Up for the Worlds

Lifting in the German National Championships this weekend, Oliver Caruso and Ronny Weller served notice that they will be coming to the World Weightlifting Championships in top form.

Caruso, who has had to fight his way back from injuries, snatched 180 kg, and cleaned and jerked 212.5 kg while competing as a very light 105-kg category lifter.  Weller, one of the world's leading superheavyweights, tipped the scales at 144 kg, and snatched 205 kg, and cleaned and jerked 250 kg.  The 2003 World Weightlifting Championships are next month, in Vancouver, British Columbia, and especially because the event is an Olympic qualifier, huge lifts are expected.
