1963 an Eleiko barbell was used for the first time in an international weightlifting championship. Since then, more than 1,000 world records have been set with the Eleiko barbell. The success is derived from its optimal balance, the firm but not too sharp grip, the synchronized smooth rotation and perfect flexibility.
For more than 50 years, Eleiko has been the leading brand in the professional sports of weightlifting and powerlifting. The Eleiko products are delivered to over 160 countries and are often seen on the world’s largest championships. The Olympic Games in London 2012 is only one of them.
