Finnish Weightlifting Association will host an Internationally sanctioned Capital Cup in conjunction with Apcon. The best lifters of Finland meet the International lifters in a battle of bending bars.
Weightlifting is one of the Olympic sports and includes two lifts: snatch and clean and jerk. The snatch is a wide-grip and one-move lift whereas clean and jerk is a two-move lift. In competitions 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.
