ELEIKO at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow

The 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow just finished. There was some amazing lifting taking place - and Eleiko was proud to be a part of the events. 

Weightlifting requires gravity-defying strength, as male and female athletes heft huge weights into the air with every lift.

It is a competition of physical and mental toughness, where athletes compete according to 15 pre-determined body-weight categories and must record the biggest lift in their division to claim the Gold medal.

The Games will also include a Powerlifting competition for Para-Sport athletes, where weights will be bench-pressed into the air from a stationary position, with individual bodyweight and technique playing a major role in determining the overall medallists.

Spectators will experience the intensity and drama of this competition at the SECC Precinct.
