The 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games are in full swing and sports fans will be able to put in wagers on a number of different events on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Men's weightlifting remains one of the most intense Gold Medal events since it was included in the first Olympic Games back in 1896. Athletes push themselves to the limits every year by attempting a maximum-weight single lift of a barbell loaded with weight plates.
