Prologue: This research paper employs a rigorous bibliometric analysis to illuminate the evolving landscape of Olympic weightlifting research. The dynamic nature of weightlifting movements and their multifaceted impact on athletes form the backdrop of this study. The research identified key themes such as biomechanics, injury prevention, and the psychological aspects of weightlifting. Leveraging the extensive Web of Science database. Methodology: In conducting this bibliometric analysis of Olympic weightlifting research, the database of Web of Science was selected as the primary source of data. A comprehensive search until January 8, 2024, yielded 10,103 articles, focusing on weightlifting, snatch, and clean & jerk. The first method involved utilizing specific keywords related to the subject, while the second method entailed identifying articles in selected journals. For inclusion the criteria were fixed to ensure relevance, including peer-reviewed publications in English. Data cleaning procedures addressed errors such as misspelled author names and variations in author affiliations. The VOSviewer 1.6.19 software facilitated bibliometric analysis, with a specific focus on keyword occurrences and co-occurrence mapping to unveil the intellectual structure of weightlifting research. This methodological approach ensures a systematic and comprehensive examination of the extensive body of literature in the field. Results and Conclusions: The bibliometric analysis presents a vivid snapshot of Olympic weightlifting research trends, showcasing a steady increase in interest over the years. Visualization tools unveil the centrality of "Power" and its robust connections with key concepts like strength and performance. The co-occurrence analysis provides a nuanced understanding of the intellectual structure, emphasizing the multidimensionality of weightlifting studies. These findings underscore the growing role of bibliometric analysis in sports sciences. In conclusion, this research contributes invaluable insights into the evolving landscape of Olympic weightlifting, encapsulating biomechanics, injury prevention, and psychological aspects. The paper serves as a comprehensive resource for researchers, aligning with contemporary discourse and shaping the trajectory of future studies in the field.
