COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (June 10, 2019) -- Pack your swimsuit with your lifting shoes as USA Weightlifting announced today it will bring the 2020 Nike American Open Series 3 powered by Rogue Fitness to the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV, September 16-20, 2020.

This will be USA Weightlifting’s first National Event following the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino hosted USA Weightlifting’s largest competition ever, the 2018 American Open Series 3. In 2019, the Westgate hosted the 2018 International Weightlifting Federation Youth World Championships, Las Vegas International Open and the National University and Under 25 Championships.

“Our members have told us they really enjoyed the setup at the Westgate and being in Las Vegas,” USA Weightlifting Director of Events and Sponsorships Pedro Meloni said. “We look forward to returning to Las Vegas and hosting another great event.”

Qualification totals will be posted later this year, as will registration and qualification information.
