Weightlifting Records

Records in weightlifting have been reset a few times over the years, when the weight categories are changed. The most recent time this happened was in November 2018.

When the records were reset, standards were set which need to be beaten in order for an athlete to claim a record. For this reason, some of the records for the current era are listed as “World Standard”
