2016 Oklahoma State Championships of Weightlifting

Greetings.  Now that we’ve all seen Captain America: Civil War, we can begin to look forward to the next epic event of the summer.  The annual State Championship Meet.

This year’s State Championships will be held at the Cox Convention Center on July 9th in conjunction with the Oklahoma Wellness and Fitness Expo.

You can register here: 2016 State Championships Registration

Once again, we will be needing the help of volunteers to pull this off.  You can sign up to help here: Volunteer Sign up.

The State Championship will follow the same format as last year.  We will have two platforms and run on a very similar schedule to be determined by athlete registration.  However, this year we are adding a new component to the State Meet, the team competition.  This is a bit of an experiment on our part and largely targeted at local Crossfit affiliates.  Teams are not required to be registered USAW clubs but team lifters are required to be members of USAW.  Teams shall consist of 2 men and 2 women for a total of 4 athletes.  There is a cap of 10 total teams in this competition.  Team scores will be calculated by the sum total of each team members Sinclair Total.  The team with the highest combined Sinclair Total shall be the victor.  Please contact me with any questions or issues.

I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention the one thing I’m most excited about.  Air conditioning.
