Weightlifting is a simple sport. Lift the bar with the most weight you win. Drop the bar you lose. However the bar can weigh up to 260 kilograms - equivalent to lifting a cow above your head and holding it until a panel of judges say you are standing still with the weight controlled and your feet in line. Men's weightlifting was part of the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896 and became a fixture in 1920. The Sydney 2000 Olympic Games adds women's weightlifting for the first time.
