Defending champion Mutlu out of Beijing

Turkish Olympic weightlifting champion Halail Mutlu has announced his withdrawal from the Beijing Games. Defending Champion Halil Mutlu’s aim of becoming the first weightlifter to win four gold medals has ended.

The three times Olympic Champion (1996, 2000, 2004) Mutlu, who will turn 35 before the Games begin, had said two weeks ago he was unable to lift his targeted weights in practice and that it would be difficult for him to take part in the competition.
