This is the list of Olympic records in weightlifting. Records are maintained in each weight class for the snatch lift, clean and jerk lift, and the total for both lifts.

The weight classes on the Olympic program were adjusted for the 2000 Games, so Olympic records only exist based on the results during and after that. Therefore, the International Weightlifting Federation has set a minimum "Olympic Standard" for each event which must be met for a new Olympic record to be established. This standard has not been met in several events at the Games.
