Olympic weightlifting is a sport in which athletes compete to lift the greatest amount of weight overhead within an athlete's weight category. The competition lifts are the Snatch and then the Clean & Jerk in that order. Each weightlifter receives three attempts in each lift. The combined total of the highest successful attempt for each lift determines the athlete's placing within their respective category.
