2016 Sinclair Calculator

This tool is used to compare lifters in different weight categories and answer the question: “What would be the total of an athlete weighing X kg if he/she were an athlete in the heaviest class with the same level of ability?” Answering this will yield the best overall lifter, regardless of bodyweight or total weight lifted.

A Sinclair coefficient was derived statistically, and adjusted each Olympic year. They are based on the Total World Records in each bodyweight category since the previous Olympics.


This is the most current, valid from 1st January 2013 to 31st December 2016
