Weightlifting & Para-Powerlifting
Tension builds as athletes work their way through increasingly unmanageable weights in this display of super-human strength.
The Commonwealth’s strongest men and women will gather at the NEC to perform their best lifts in the two classic disciplines of snatch, and clean and jerk. With just three attempts in each to make their best lift, the athletes will need to give it their all in order to make the podium in this celebrated test of power, composure and pure brute strength.
Para-Powerflifting is fully integrated into this event and will see athletes lift up to three times their bodyweight from a prone bench, pushing up phenomenal weights to arms length.
