In weightlifting, competitors lift barbells above their head with both hands, and the one who succeeds in lifting the heaviest barbell wins. Competitors are categorized into different divisions according to their body weight and compete with others in the same division.
The World Masters Games 2021 Kansai will feature two weightlifting events: the snatch, which involves gripping a barbell with both hands and lifting it above the head in one move; and the clean and jerk, which involves first lifting a barbell to the clavicles (clean) and then raising it above the head in the next move (jerk). The competitor with the highest combined score of both events wins.
The information on this page is for reference as it was held in May 2021.
