2017 Olympia Cup: Olympic Weightlifting Championships
September 15 @ 8:00 am - September 16 @ 5:00 pm AKDT
AlaskaFit Productions proudly presents The 2017 Risto Sports Olympia Cup! This event will be a USAW sanctioned National Qualifier with prizes for the top winners by Sinclair formula. Last years competitors walked away with over $3000 in cash and prizes and 4 national records were set. Olympic Medalist Dimitry Klokov was on hand to give out trophies, sign autographs and conduct training seminars. We look forward to having you breaking the next world record!
The competition will feature top weightlifters from all over the country as well as international guest lifters. Prizes will be awarded to the best male and female lifters going by their pound for pound results in the snatch and clean and jerk. Team awards will also be given. Look out for Risto Sport’s elite lifting squad to take on the world’s best.
Weightlifting is one of the oldest Olympic Sports and has two events – the snatch and clean and jerk. All lifters competing must complete both the snatch and clean and jerk. Their best lift in each discipline are combined to yield a total. It is an exciting sport to watch as weights are lifted in one fast, explosive motion from the floor to overhead as lifters try to out-lift each other with each successive attempt. Come by and see the action all weekend long at the Olympia Expo!
