The 2013 European Weightlifting Championships will get underway Monday in Tirana, Albania.

The Russian national weightlifting team, on the other hand, headed to the tournament with its strongest members. The 2012 European champion, Armenian weightlifter Davit Bejanyan (105 kg) likewise is in this Russian squad.
