2018 American Open Finals Qualifying Totals

Feb. 05, 2018, 1:05 p.m. (ET)

The USA Weightlifting Board of Directors and Competition Committee approved the qualifying totals for the 2018 Nike American Open Finals presented by Rogue Fitness which will run December 6-9 at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The 2018 qualifying totals equal to 2017's American Open Finals. 

Registration will not open until the IWF establishes new weight categories, which is expected to happen by July. The qualifying totals will not change, despite new weight categories being established. Athletes will be able to register for their new weight category using qualifying totals for their previous weight category. For example, a current 48kg athlete will qualify for the American Open Finals in a new (theoretical) 50kg category with a qualifying total total of 128kg or higher.

An updated chart with qualifying totals will be provided once the IWF finalizes the new weight categories. 

Athletes can qualify for the American Open Finals by either meeting the qualifying totals below or qualifying through the American Open Series. Click here to read more about the American Open Series in 2018.
