Weightlifting

Weightlifter prepares his hands before the lift The ultimate test of physical strength between individuals

Weightlifting is an intense sport, since competitors draw on all their mental and physical strength to lift massive weights, often more than twice their own body weight.

Competitors aim to lift a weighted bar above the head and hold it under control until signalled by the referee to replace it on the platform.

Weightlifting is split into two separate lifts - the snatch, and the clean and jerk. Competitors have a maximum of three attempts at each lift.

With only three attempts allowed, tactics, such as deciding which weight to start with, are crucial.
