In 2016, the International Olympic Committee made several changes to its sports program, which were subsequently implemented for these games. Included in the changes was a reduction of one men's weightlifting event. This means a total of 14 weightlifting events will be contested (seven per gender). A total of 126 weightlifters will qualify to compete at the games.[2]

This event will serve as one of the events that will allow athletes to post qualifying weights for the weightlifting competitions at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.[3]
