Weightlifting One Hand Lift

The weightlifting one-hand lift was on the Olympic Program in the years 1896, 1904 and 1906. This event, for men only, was similar to the modern snatch weight lifting event.

Only one hand was allowed in lifting the weights. They had to perform lifts with each hand, with the winner determined from the combined score of both hands.

The lifters were allowed three attempts. After each had lifted three times, the top three received three more attempts.
