Here is a phot0 of the crowd of spectators that came to the Riocentro – Pavilion 2 to watch the competition in the over 105KG class at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Olympic weightlifting is not the top popularity sports. It’s highly specialized and mostly attended by acting and former lifters, family members and friends.
It’s nice to see full house in the weightlifting arenas.
My guess people are excited to see big guys in the super heavyweight class.
Plus Fernando Reis of Brazil is a contender for the medals tonight.
Way to go!
