Medal summary[edit]

The results of the 2012 Olympic weightlifting competition have been significantly revised after evidence of doping was uncovered through retests of samples from these Games that were undertaken in 2016: 16 lifters (13 medallists, and three further lifters who would have inherited forfeited medals) have tested positive for a variety of prohibited substances following these retests. Below are the results listed by the International Weightlifting Federation.
