The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board approves medal reallocation from Olympic Games London 2012, and in the men’s 105 kg weightlifting event, the gold medal is reallocated to "Navab Nasirshelal" from Iran's national team.

Iran PressIran News: In a consultative meeting held on Wednesday via videoconference, the IOC Executive Board (EB) took the decision to reallocate medals, diplomas, and medallist pins from the Olympic Games London 2012 based on decisions made by the IOC Disciplinary Commission.

Following the disqualification of athletes in weightlifting, the results have been adjusted accordingly by the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF).

In the men’s 105 kg weightlifting event, the first- and fourth-placed athletes have been disqualified, so the gold medal is reallocated to "Navab Nasirshelal" of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the silver to "Bartlomiej Wojciech Bonk" of Poland, and the bronze to "Ivan Efremov" of Uzbekistan, and the subsequent ranking until the eighth place has been adapted.

The third- and ninth-placed athletes in the men’s 56 kg weightlifting event have been disqualified, so the bronze medal now goes to "le Quoc Toan Tran" from Vietnam, and the subsequent ranking until the eighth place has been adapted.

The eighth-placed athlete in the men’s 62 kg weightlifting event has been disqualified, and "Ahmed Saad" from Egypt is now ranked eighth.

Since 2018, athletes can choose from six options for receiving their reallocated medals in a way that recognizes their achievements.

This is according to the Olympic Medal Reallocation Principles proposed by the IOC Athletes’ Commission and subsequently approved by the IOC EB.
