The weightlifting event at these Games will be brilliantly organised.
Over 70 volunteers looking after the sport of weightlifting to ensure that all areas of the sport run smoothly.
This year weightlifting has taken a different format. It is the first time that athletes have had to qualify to compete. It is the first time that there are only 15 lifters per category – thereby eliminating ‘B’ sessions.
It is the first time also that there is only one lifter per country per category.
