Aria Bremner, of the Harrisburg Weightlifting Club, has been selected to represent Team USA, Florida State University, and the HWC at the 2018 FISU University World Championships.

She will have to travel to Poland in mid-September, and must pay her own way.  USA Weightlifting does not fund this trip, so we are opening up a fundraiser to help her get there.

As someone who has only been competing for 2.5 years, it is a very prestigious honor to make a World Team this early in a career, and we are very excited for and proud of her.  Please help her raise the funds necessary to make the trip.  It will be around $4,000 for her and a coach.

USA Weightlifting Athlete Development Camp

USA Weightlifting, the National Governing Body of Olympic Weightlifting in the United States, is launching nationwide Athlete Development Camps to identify the sport’s rising stars.

Led by Region administrators, USA Weightlifting-affiliated clubs will host 2-day camps for athletes new to the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. Attendees will learn about the Olympic movements, and receive a 12-week program to aid them in their sports performance.

“This is a terrific opportunity to introduce people to the athletic benefits of Olympic Weightlifting,” USA Weightlifting Director of Program Development Suzy Sanchez said.

Once local camps conclude, certain athletes will be selected to participate in Regional and National Camps where the sport’s top coaches will evaluate the athletes’ skill and potential. Then, twice a year, a National Development Squad will be named. The squad will consist of the top ten 17 and under athletes and the top ten Junior & Senior athletes.
