The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the talent indices of weightlifting from Iranian top coaches' points of view. The statistical sample of the present study which was selected purposefully included 40 Iranian coaches in grades one and two having the history of being in the Premier League and national team. To this end, a questionnaire was designed in two parts consisting of personal questions and questions related to talent. Its validity and reliability were obtained using Cronbach alpha as 0.81. To analyze the obtained data, the descriptive statistical method including tables, charts and scattering- and central tendency indices was used. The study results revealed that coaches in the study believed that having strong and big fingers in the area of anthropometric criteria is in the first priority and physical strength in the area of physical-movement criteria is in the first priority of weightlifting talent identification. The anaerobic power of physiological criteria is in the first priority in the weightlifting talent identification and obeying the coach for mental-social criteria is in the first priority too.
