I can’t ever recall actually seeing Olympic weightlifting events on TV ever. I’ve seen plenty of commercials showing big guys lifting impossibly huge weights (and subsequently dropping them into the basement parking lot). This illustrates the futility of car alarms, I suppose (but I digress).
What are the Olympic weightlifting events. Who are the contenders? How much do they lift? How is it scored? What are the world (and Olympic) records for these events?
Thanks in advance.
