About Weightlifting

Weightlifting, also commonly known as Olympic Weightlifting is a sport consisting of two main lifts.

Snatch: The barbell is moved from the floor to overhead in a single movement.

Clean and Jerk: The barbell is first moved from the floor to the shoulders (the clean) and then from the shoulders to overhead (the jerk).

In competition, each weightlifter has three attempts in each the snatch and clean & jerk. The best weight of each lift is added to create the weightlifter's total, and the best total wins.
