After nearly two years of service, USA Weightlifting Associate Executive Director of Sport, Lance Williams, has left the organization to explore new professional opportunities.

"We thank Lance for his service to our membership," USA Weightlifting CEO Phil Andrews said. "Under his leadership we developed and carried out a plan that has led to great competitive success."

Since Williams started at USA Weightlifting in 2016, the organization saw its first Olympic medal in 16 years, its first World Championship medals in years, the crowning of its first World Champion in decades and dozens of medals at the youth and junior levels on the international stage.
