Robert Dołęga (born December 31, 1977 in Łuków) is a Polish weightlifter.[1] He won a silver medal for the heavyweight division at the 2000 European Weightlifting Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, and bronze at the 2008 European Weightlifting Championships in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy.[2]

Dolega made his official debut for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, where he competed in the men's heavyweight class (105 kg). Unfortunately, he did not finish the event, after failing to lift a snatch of 180 kg in three attempts.

At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Dolega competed for his second time in the men's 105 kg class, along with his younger brother Marcin. Unlike his previous Olympics, Dolega placed eighth in this event, as he successfully lifted 184 kg in the snatch, and hoisted 221 kg in the clean and jerk, for a total of 405 kg.[3]
