Did you know: The aim of Weightlifting is simple: to life more weight than anyone else. Competitors in Olympic Weightlifting are divided into 15 weight categories, eight for men and seven for women.

Olympic History: Weightlifting was on the programme of the Games of the I Olympiad, Athens 1896, (included in the gymnastics programme). The sport was not staged at the Paris 1900 Games, but was re-included for the St Louis 1904 Games (in the athletics programme), then disappeared again in 1908 and 1912. Since the Games of the VII Olympiad, Antwerp 1920, it has been on the programme of each edition. Women’s weightlifting made its debut on the Olympic programme at the Games of the XXVII Olympiad, Sydney 2000.
