Sonny Webster will compete in his Games in the men's 94kg division after being crowned British Champion earlier this month.
He has previously competed at the Commonwealth Games, finishing fifth, and is a former European junior bronze medallist.
The 22-year-old also broke the British U23 record at the British Championships.
Team GB have won seven Olympic weightlifting medals – one gold, three silver and three bronze – with the last medal won at Los Angeles 1984.
he Olympics is undoubtedly the biggest stage for the sport and to be given the opportunity to represent my country in Rio this summer is something I’m incredibly proud of.

It's a year since the Olympics began and almost exactly a year since Peter Wilson shot his way to gold medal glory in the double-trap event at the Games.
The Dorset shooter's life has completely changed in the last 12 months but, despite the many distractions, his sights remain firmly fixed on Rio 2016.
Olympic shooting champion Peter Wilson has paid tribute to his friend and fellow Sherborne resident Andrew Simpson.
The 2012 gold medal winner expressed his shock at the tragedy which claimed the life of his British team mate.
36 year old Simpson died after his yacht capsized during training for the America's Cup race in San Fransisco Bay, California.
In an exclusive interview with ITV News, Wilson recounts meeting Simpson at a local supermarket shortly before he departed for the States:
One of the two bronze medals stolen from Olympians Hannah Macleod and Alex Partridge has been found. They were taken along with their TeamGB jackets when they were at a London nightclub early on Wednesday.
Scotland Yard said Hannah's medal had been posted anonymously to the England Hockey head office.
Bath rower Alex Partridge's gong is still missing though. Tonight he tweeted a request for it to be returned.
If you have my medal please send it to British Rowing 6 Lower Mall Hammersmith London.
