Coming off the heels of a successful 2020 Online Youth World Cup, Team USA turns its attention to the 2020 Online Junior Pan American Championships November 20-28. 

Originally scheduled to be held in person in Manizales, Colombia, the organizing committee transitioned the event to an online competition.

"We're looking for a strong performance from our athletes," Mike Gattone, USA Weightlifting's Senior Director of High Performance and Coaching Education said. "We're grateful for the opportunity to lift in this online format."
