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.

The competition typically attracts approximately 300 athletes plus hundreds of coaches and spectators.

Overland Park is the second most populous city in Kansas, located south west of Kansas City’s City Center, approximately 30 miles from Kansas City International Airport.

“Returning to one of the primary hotbeds of Weightlifting for our National Championships is exciting after such a great turn out by the Kansas City Weightlifting community for the National Junior Championship in 2016” USA Weightlifting CEO Phil Andrews said.

Registration will open January 2, 2018, and hotel information will be posted on USAWeightlifting.org as soon as it's available.
