What is Olympic Weightlifting

What is Olympic Weightlifting?

Olympic Weightlifting, otherwise known as 'weightlifting', is a registered sport which has been recognised in every summer Olympic Games since 1920.

It comprises two technical lifts; the snatch and the clean & jerk. 

In both explosive movements, the athlete must lift a loaded barbell from ground to overhead, requiring a combination of strength, speed and coordination.

A balanced training programme will typically incorporate not only variations of the snatch and clean & jerk, but also other strength components such as the squat, pull and press.
