l'haltérophilie

It's February!  The word of the day in French is l(a) haltérophilie.  It means weightlifting.
  • L'haltérophilie, un sport consistant à soulever des poids, fait partie des disciplines Olympiques les plus anciennes.
Weightlifting, a sport involving the raising of heavy pieces of metal, is among the oldest of Olympic disciplines.   

[I took some liberties with the original so it wouldn't sound quite so repetitive in English.]
