Weightlifting at the 1896 Summer Olympics

At the 1896 Summer Olympics, two weightlifting events were contested (men's one hand lift and two hand lift). The top two places were won by the same two men in each event, though their order was reversed for the two events. The bronze medals were split by the two Greek weightlifters. A total of seven men from five nations competed.[1]
