Olympic Weightlifting is a safe, dynamic sport that is extremely good for flexibility, speed, and strength.  It involves two classical lifts:  snatch and clean & jerk. This is a sport for girls and boys of all sizes.

Rangitoto College has a great history in the sport.  At the 2014 National Secondary School competition, our team placed third overall. In 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, we won first place, top male team, for New Zealand Secondary School Championships.
