    Im not training all day due to a severely sprained neck and i have been looking at olympic lifts and weightlifers. I have been googleing for a while but i can't find much info on the changes in 93 and 98. The only this i can find is that the IWF "restructured" the weight classes in 93 and 98 and therefore the old records don't count. Im trying to figure out exactly how the weight classes were changed both times, and if possible, why this was done, and why the old records don't stand anymore.

    Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this.

    And the record for clean and jerk before '92 was about 6 pounds higher than it is now.
