Sixteen new National Champions will be crowned in Kansas in 2018 when the 2018 Nike USA Weightlifting National Championships powered by Rogue Fitness land in Overland Park May 24-27, 2018.
The Overland Park Convention Center will act as the host venue with competition’s primary hotel located adjacent at the Sheraton Overland Park.
The National Championships are the premier domestic event of the year for USA Weightlifting, crowning National Champions in each weight category plus the National Team champions for the year.
