With powerhouse legs, dynamite arms and a concrete core, these athletes are the strongmen and women of the Games.

Weightlifting is an enthralling competition of strength, speed and determination that will captivate the crowd at the Carrara Sports and Leisure Centre.

As the barbell is lifted, fans will witness eyes bulge, cheeks puff and every muscle strain.

If the weight is held overhead, a roar of victory will signify success.

If not, it’s not panic stations – each competitor has three attempts to make a successful lift.

In each bodyweight category for men and women, the competition features both the snatch and the clean and jerk.

It is the combined weight of their best lift in both that will determine the ultimate fate and placing for each weightlifter.

The atmosphere will reach fever pitch as the competition unfolds and these super-strong athletes aim to be the strongest of them all.
