Abstract

INTRODUCTION Interest in female weightlifting has increased in recent years. The First World Women's Weightlifting Championship was held in 1987 in Florida with nine weight categories. At this meet, 27 world records of snatch, clean and jerk, and total weight were set. Chinese weightlifters took part in eight weight categories and set 22 world records. They have been prominent at the World Championships every year since. At the 6th World Women's Weightlifting Championship in Bulgaria in 1992, Chinese weightlifters broke 24 world records and had 26 champions. In this study, the techniques of Chinese elite female weightlifters were analyzed in order to promote their technical levels of weightlifting.
