Comparative analysis of weightlifting results at the London 2012 Olympic Games

The article deals with the comparative statistical analysis of the results of male and female lifters, achieved in London, UK, at the 2012 Olympic Games. It has been established that in case of male weightlifters there are significant differences between the results of different bodyweight categories; the winner of the given category would have been on the average only the 7th in the next, heavier weight category. In general there is a rather high homogeneity within the categories, the performance level of the lifters on the 6th places is only 6.16 % (SD= 2.35 %) less than the results of the gold medalists. On the contrary, in case of female competitors results are not balanced. The no homogeneity is high; there are huge differences between the results of the winners and the others. The gold medalists of the given category would have been still 5th in the next category, and the results level of the lifters on the 6th places is 11.87 % (SD=4.85 %) less than the winning result.
