The Sport

Weightlifting is an Olympic sport and one of the most important considering the large number of medals given. Considered as always, a sport of strength, it is increasingly clear that strength is not enough, but the success is the result of applying a good technique as well. During the lifting, the athlete makes two movements: first, holding the weights at the shoulder height to immediately lift them over their head. The sum of these two tests will results in the total advantage, the third test. Each athlete has three opportunities to lift the weights and the goal is quite simple: the one who lifts the most weight wins.
