Weightlifting at 2018 Commonwealth Games Odds

What could be more impressive than muscular people lifting unbelievable weights. With powerhouse legs, dynamite arms and a concrete core on show from every athlete, no other sport can match Weightlifting in a display of pure, crowd-captivating strength. Super-strong men and women compete across a range of bodyweight categories in the snatch and the clean and jerk disciplines. Each athlete has three attempts to make their best lift. It is the combined weight of their best lift in both disciplines that will determine the ultimate placings. Who will be the strongest of them all?
