Weightlifting, Lima 2019 discipline
Sport review

In this sport, athletes are able to lift more than three times their weight. There are two types of lifts: snatch, and clean & jerk. In snatch, athletes have three attempts. Athletes must lift the bar in a single movement from the platform to the full extent of the arms above the head. In clean & jerk there are also three attempts, but it must be a two-movement lift. Athletes must lift the bar from the platform to the shoulders. Then, the athlete extends the legs and arms to move the bar upward to the full extent of the arms above the head. In Lima 2019, 140 athletes (70 men and 70 women) will compete in this sport. Cuba is the historical leader with 67 gold medals, followed by the United States with 48. Competitions will be held at the Chorrillos Military School.

Keywords

Chalk: The magnesium carbonate powder used on weightlifters’ hands to reduce slippage on the bar.

History
