Team USA travels to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic this week for the Senior Pan American Weightlifting Championships May 12-19. 

"We've field a very strong team, that I think will do extremely well," USA Weightlifting Senior Director of Sport Performance and Coaching Education Mike Gattone said. "We can't wait to get to the Dominican Republic and win some medals."

The United States is coming off of an historic performance in 2017. At the Pan Ams In Miami last year, Team USA took home 24 medals, including 8 gold medals. Sarah Robles (+90kg, Houston Texas, Team Houston) and Caine Wilkes (+105kg, Matthews, NC, Little League Weightlifting) will defend their 2017 Pan American Championships.

More than just bragging rights are on the line at the 2018 Pan Ams. A strong performance by Team USA in the Dominican Republic can lead to the United States fielding a full team of 6 athletes per gender at next year's Pan American Games in Lima, Peru. Following last year's Pan Am Championships, Team USA men sit in 2nd place while Team USA women are currently 4th. After the 2018 Pan Ams, the top 3 teams in each gender by points will be awarded a full team at the 2019 Pan Am Games.

Final lifting dates and times will be provided after Sunday's Verification of Final Entries meeting. This story will be updated when lifting times have been finalized. If a live stream is available, information will be posted here.
