About the Team
Olympic weightlifting trains the athlete for functional strength, utilizing the body’s major muscle groups. Students are taught the two lifts of Olympic lifting: the snatch & the clean & jerk. Training involves learning technique & building body strength necessary to perform the two Olympic lifts mentioned above. Students can choose to join the Variety Village Weightlifting Team & compete in Olympic Weightlifting or use the beneﬁts of training for this sport to help them excel in others.
Head Coach Abdalah Alsabai Abdalah brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the sport of weightlifting. Training since 1989, he is both an Olympic athlete and a world champion.
