Welcome to the Tokyo Olympics 2020!

~This thread is all about Weightlifting~

Weightlifting has been contested at every Summer Olympic Games since the 1920 Summer Olympics, as well as twice before then. At the 2020 Olympics, it consists of 14 medal events (7 men's and 7 women's), with athletes divided by weight class.

The schedule can be found here.

Use this thread to make your predictions about these sports, and discuss the events as they happen.

Congrats to Hou Zhihui of China for the win (and new Olympic records!) in the Women's 49 kg! :congrats:

Roilya Ranaivosoa, of my sweepstake country Mauritius, came 5th in her group (11th overall).

My other sweepstake country (Kiribati) also brought a weightlifter: Ruben Katoatau finished 12th in the men's 67 kg.

Congrats to Chen Lijun (again from China) for taking gold, and smashing his own record. :yay:

He did take silver though and he's only 21. So he'll probably be back in three years time.

Lasha Talakhadze's opening lifts were comfortably ahead of any by his competitors. His final lifts broke his own world records including a 265kg clean and jerk. The guy is just insanely strong.
