Does London lost hope on Olympic 2020 weightlifting ?

“I don’t have any money to put aside for a world championship fund” says Zoe Smith, a British athlete. In an exclusive interview Smith explains the costs of UK Sport’s drastic funding cuts two years ago which have left her and other top British athletes struggling to reach the Tokyo Games in 2020. “I make next to nothing,” says Zoe Smith, while being bluntly honest. “I earn pretty much just above minimum wage working at a bubble tea cafe, I don’t have any money to put aside for a world championship fund”. She confessed it with a shrug and a laugh but is London  literally treating their Olympians like this?

We wonder, this time what politics might have involved to make suffer the top athletes. Being one of the wealthiest and strongest country in terms of power, money and economy and on the other hand no funds for Tokyo 2020 weight lifting ??The irony is that there is currently a real window of opportunity in the sport. Due to many doping violation, China is not competing at the current Asian Games after a one-year suspension. “Realistically if there was ever a chance to take a shot at an Olympic medal, it’s now,” says Smith. ’It just so happens that this is the one time we can’t afford to get there.”

Today an athlete like Zoe Smith is putting up with such situation of less funds. It would be a massive shame if weightlifting in the UK was to die because of under investment.

Please note that this might seem a strange situation in a country which spends £266m on Olympic funding. Rowing currently gets £31m per year. Sailing gets £26m. Canoeing £19m. Taekwondo £10m. Modern pentathlon £6m. Yet weightlifting and other outcasts don’t receive a penny.


Smith is still fundraising herself and her team mates with many sports lovers in her support, while serving coffee at Bubble Tea Cafe. Cheers to her spirit and her humour!!

“I’ve been recognised a couple of times at work,” she says.
“They say ‘Oh, are you that weightlifter?’ and then I say:
‘Do you want tapioca with that?’”

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
