COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (May 21, 2020) -- With the nation slowly reopening, USA Weightlifting understands that not all members will have the opportunity to compete in person in the month of June. Today USAW announced it will hold another online qualifying competition, the Lift Proud Virtual Cup June 1-30.
Themed around LGBTQIA+ pride celebrations across the country, the Lift Proud Virtual Cup is open to any USA Weightlifting member who wishes to participate.
Like the previous American Open Series Online Qualifier and Virtual Super Championships, the Lift Proud Virtual Cup will enable athletes to qualify for the remainder of the 2020 USA Weightlifting National Events including the Nike American Open Series 3 powered by Rogue Fitness, National Youth Championships, National Championships and American Open Finals. Totals earned in the online competitions can also count towards qualification in 2021 USA Weightlifting National Events, should the event fall within the event’s qualification period. 2021 qualification information will be posted at www.USAWeightlifting.org when available.
Like previous online competitions, there is no fee to enter. However, in its continuing mission to promote Weightlifting as a sport that unites us all, USA Weightlifting encourages participants to donate to our Diversity & Inclusion Fund during the registration process, which begins June 1 at http://USAWeightlifting.events.
