Weightlifting

A triumph of technical ability and raw power, weightlifting is a display of pure, crowd-captivating strength. Spectators will find their own body tensing in empathy with the struggle, they will share the relief when the weight is conquered… or the disappointment of a failed attempt when the weight comes crashing down. Weightlifting events at the Arafura Games will feature two exciting lifts, the “snatch” and the “clean-and-jerk”.
