Weightlifting Overview

Weightlifting at the Olympics consists of two types of lifts, the snatch and the clean and jerk, performed across a range of weight categories. Women's weightlifting has recently been included in the Olympics. Each lifter has a maximum of three lifts, regardless of whether they're successful or not. The athlete who chooses the lowest weight to attempt will go first but they are able to raise their weight in 1kg increments to try to better their competition.
