Hey guys, since the Olympics are coming up... I was wondering if anyone knew how they keep score for the weightlifting competitions. Is it by most weight lifted? Are there weight classes? Do you get less points for how easy the weight was to lift?

They score the total weight for the clean and jerk and the snatch. It doesn't matter if it was easy or hard as long as it was more. If two guys tie, the guy with the lower body weight wins.
