Weightlifting and para-powerlifting sees the strongest athletes in the Commonwealth Games compete to raise the biggest possible weights into the air.

At the Gold Coast 2018 Games, Team England competed for 16 weightlifting medals and four para-powerlifting medals.

Team England won a total of six medals in weightlifting including a gold won by Emily Godley in the women's 75kg. In para-powerlifting three medals were won by Team England. 

Athletes are separated by weight categories although the top athletes can lift three times their own weight.
