Weightlifting

In weightlifting, athletes attempt a single lift of a barbell loaded with weights. Weightlifting has been one of our most successful sports: we've produced major event medallists like Zoe Smith and many other champions at the Commonwealth Games. PRO FACT Olympic weightlifting first appeared at the 1896 Olympics. But it took until 1920 to become a permanent Olympic Sport.
