Although men’s weightlifting has always been on the programme of the Olympic Games – except for at the 1900, 1908 and 1912 editions — women started to participate only at the 2000 Games in Sydney.

The Olympic weightlifting programme has evolved greatly over time. Today, weightlifters compete in snatch and clean and jerk, and are placed according to their total combined result. From the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, men have competed in eight weight categories and women in seven. This total of 15 events remains unchanged.

  1. cant one brainwashed westerner congratulate him or are you all gonna bang on about the north korean goverment and the food supply btw north koreas population is increasing every year so yes they are eating

  2. Weightlifting ability:


    Neanderthals had bigger brains and more muscle mass than homo sapiens…

    Do Asians have more neanderthal genes than Europeans? Seems likely.

  3. It's kinda sad to see all these comments about his KJU, UGK's family getting to eat, or him being allowed to survive in a video made to capture this athlete's moment. Instead of giving him congratulations like civilized people, we decide to make a joke out of it.

  4. Haha! the entire pathetic country of the United Kingdom of capitalist pigs was fooled. That was the god KIM JONG UN lifting just his personal workout regiment! he can actually clean and jerk the entire universe, but he chose to limit his power as not to blow the minds of the simple headed english judges.

  5. No you guys making stupid little jokes these jokes have gone in your head and you start to believe it. No the DPRK athletes aren't threatened with death camp for losing. They've been a part of these games. You never want to give credit to the athlete for his hard work and breaking records stereo typically accomplished by Central Asians and Europeans.
