* IWF / EWF / Nat. Federations Home Introduction in Weightlifting Weightlifting - Powerlifting - Bodybuilding It is important to make a clear distinction between the three related sports branches that often get mixed up: weightlifting, bodybuilding and powerlifting. All three competition sports are based on weight training but there are also fundamental differences. What counts in " body-building " is the athlete's appearance, or as de term explains itself: how well is the body builded. So there is only real use from weights in the training sessions, while on the competition itself only the result of this weight-training on the body is displayed. Weightlifting and powerlifting are much closer to each other; in both strength sports the aim is to lift as much as possible while the looks of the athlete's body are of no importance. In power-lifting there are three movements at which the "pure" strength from the participants is tested. With the first movement- the

    Weightlifting First Olympic Appearance: 1896 (men); 2000 (women) by John Gettings
    Did You Know?
    Turkey's Naim Suleymanoglu, who is considered the greatest Olympic weightlifter in history, weighed just 140 pounds and stood 4 feet, 11 inches tall. That combination of size and strength earned him the nickname "The Pocket Hercules."
    Women's weightlifting made its first Olympic appearance in 2000. Both men and women must complete two different lifts in this event. In a "snatch lift", the barbell is pulled from the platform to above the head in one continuous motion. In a "clean-and-jerk" the lift is done in two motions. First, the bar is pulled up to the shoulders as the lifter goes into a squat and follows that with a burst into an upright position. Once there, with the bar resting on their chest, the lifter must extend his/her arms and raise the bar above their head and wait for the referee's signal. The maximum weights the lifter is able to successfully lift using both techniques are added together to determine the winner.

Weightlifting When the modern Olympic Games began, weightlifting was one of the charter sports. There were no weight divisions at that time, and the first events were a one-handed lift and a two-handed lift. Women were included in the weightlifting events for the first time at the 2000 Olympic Summer Games in Sydney. Click a link to

The Lifts:
Snatch: In executing the snatch, the contestant grasps the barbell and in one continuous forceful motion lifts it to the full extent of both arms over the head. The legs may be flexed or moved at any time during this lift, but must be returned to the same plane to complete the lift. The competitor must come to an erect position with arms locked. When the feet, body, and bar lie in the same plane, the referees give the down signal. News, History, and Fast Facts

March 9, 2000 Suzanne Leathers, RN, can carry her weight at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, Ga., but that isn’t where the real weightlifting begins. Leathers can hang with the best of them in the clean-and-jerk and the snatch, forms of competitive weightlifting that have propelled her to visions of Olympic success. Leathers, who has been lifting weights for seven years, trains rigorously for three hours a day during the week, then works two 12-hour shifts on weekends as an intensive care nurse on the ICU med/surg trauma team at Memorial Health. She says the hospital has been great in allowing her to pursue her dreams, which may come true this month. For the first time in Olympic history, female weightlifting will be featured as an event and Leathers, ranked seventh in the nation in the 75-kg (165-pound) weight class, has a good shot at being one of four weightlifters who will be chosen to compete in Sydney, Australia, this summer.

The rebirth of the Games
The first Session of the IOC was held in Paris on 23-24 June 1894. It was during the first Session that the city of Athens was selected for the Games of the I Olympiad. The inauguration of the first Games of the modern era, opened by King George I at the foot of the Acropolis on April 5, 1896, was a huge relief for baron Pierre de Coubertin. Greece's instability and economic stature, due to numerous conflicts, proved almost insurmountable obstacles. However, a wealthy Greek architect from Alexandria, George Averoff, donated a gift of one million drachma and in a matter of 18 months a superb white marble stadium, able to hold 60,000 people, was constructed. Baron de Coubertin's dream of reinventing the Games was one he had coveted since 1892 - two years later the official announcement was made and Athens chosen as the site. Baron Pierre de Coubertin invited countries from all over the world to attend the first of the new Olympics in Athens.
