  3. History of Weightlifting in the Olympics • The first Olympics were held in 1896. • Weightlifting was part of the “Field” events categorized under “Track and Field”, meaning it was not it’s own event. • There were 2 categories: One-handed lifts and Two-handed lifts.

  6. History continued… • In 1928, Weightlifting dropped one-hand exercises altogether, leaving only: • The Clean and Press • The Snatch • The Clean and Jerk By 1972, the Clean and Press was eliminated, and what was left is what is still used in today’s Olympics: The Snatch , Clean and Jerk, and the Hang Cleans

  7. Weight Classes… • Before 1932, athletes of all sizes and weights competed in just one single weight class. But for the 1932 Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, 5 weight classes were added. • Today, 7 weight classes exist for Olympic competition.
