Senior Weightlifting World Records – Female

This is a list of the current women’s senior world records in the sport of Weightlifting. Linked to each world record is a video of the lift as well as the athlete’s Instagram page or Wikipedia page. We also have a page of men’s records.

These world records cover the Robi era which began prior to the 2018 Weightlifting World Championships in Ashgabat. Throughout the history of our sport world records have been wiped from the books in conjunction with the creation of new weight classes (1973, 1992, 1998, 2018). As such new world standards must be surpassed for a lift to count as a new world record.
