Weightlifting event has two competition lifts in order are the 'snatch' and the 'clean and jerk'. Each weightlifter receives three attempts in each, and the combined total of the highest two successful lifts determines the overall result within a bodyweight category. Weightlifting at Inter IIT organises its event in 5 weight categories.

These body weight categories are:
1) Up to 56 kg
2) 56 kg - 62 kg
3) 62 kg - 69 kg
4) 69 kg - 77 kg
5) Above 77 kg

With an aim to clinch the Inter-Hostel title or to bring glory to the institute in Inter-IITs, many weightlifters can be seen slogging it out in the SAC weightlifting room daily. The various events are held under different categories by weight and the standard rules are followed. All the required equipments are available in SAC itself. Apart from this, each hostel has its own facilities for this sport which is gaining popularity among the IIT-D students. It is the result of these facilities and the effort of our national level coach, Mr. S.K. Bakshi that we've had performed very well at past Inter IITs . So the next time you think that an IITian is all brains and no brawn, think twice.
