Although men’s weightlifting has always been on the programme of the Olympic Games – except for at the 1900, 1908 and 1912 editions — women started to participate only at the 2000 Games in Sydney.

The Olympic weightlifting programme has evolved greatly over time. Today, weightlifters compete in snatch and clean and jerk, and are placed according to their total combined result. From the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, men have competed in eight weight categories and women in seven. This total of 15 events remains unchanged.

  3. they must have fed him all the food available so they can make this moment happen.

  4. I wonder if all athletes from NK have to go surrender their medals to KJU and the media then tells the country that it is their leader who has won all the medals.
