Competitive Olympic Weightlifting involves both men and women, lifting a weighted barbell over their heads under control. Contenders are separated into weight categories and are judged on the amount of weight they lift using the two Olympic Weightlifting techniques, the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk.
Modern weightlifting can be traced back thousands of years and stands alongside running, jumping and throwing as one of the earliest displays of sporting prowess.
The aim of BWL Talent Campaign is to identify individuals who posses outstanding raw talent, and with elite coaching and specialist support, could be capable of reaching the top of the podium at the 2016 Paralympics games in Brazil. The Talent Assessment day is an opportunity for athletes to test out their physical prowess and accompanying hunger to succeed under the guidance of GB coaches and Performance support team.
