Weightlifting at the Commonwealth Games

Weightlifting is one of the sports at the quadrennial Commonwealth Games competition. It has been a Commonwealth Games sport since 1950. It is a core sport and must be included in the sporting programme of each edition of the Games.

A total of 17 events were contested at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, 8 for men 7 for women and two powerlifting events. The first women's events were introduced in 2002. Between 1990 and 2002 a medal was awarded for each of the snatch and clean and jerk phases and for the combined total, offering as many as 46 gold medals in 2002.[1] Since 2006 medals have only been awarded based on the combined total of both of these phases, as is the case at the Olympics. Since 2002 powerlifting events have been contested at the Commonwealth games and the sports results have counted under weightlifting ever since.
