Are you watching the Olympics? I highly recommend to at least check the Weightlifting Highlights videos. For example, in the women's weight class 53kg (117 lbs) Zulfiya Chinshanlo, a 19 year old Kazakh weightlifter, snatched 95kg (209 lbs)! Full Schedule & Results for Weightlifting coverage is here.
