Weightlifting
Weightlifting is a sport in which participants attempt to make a single lift of a maximum weight of a bar loaded with weight plates.

The two lifts currently competed are the clean and jerk and the snatch.

Weightlifting requires a combination of power, speed, technique, concentration and timing. Super heavyweight lifters normally claim the title of World’s Strongest Man or Woman.

However, kilo per kilo, the lightest weightlifter is often the strongest.

Weightlifting was first incorporated into the Asian Games in 1951.
