(Colorado SpringsColo.) – USA Weightlifting is pleased to announce that the inaugural CrossFit / USA Weightlifting Open will be held from Oct. 1-3 at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs.


The event will join weightlifting – one of the oldest Olympic sports – with CrossFit – one of the most popular strength and conditioning programs in the nation that combines weightlifting, sprinting and gymnastics.


“We’re excited to partner with our friends in the CrossFit community to host this event,” said USA Weightlifting CEO Rick Adams (Colorado Sp
“USAW is committed to broadening our relationships throughout our industry and partnering with a first-class organization like CrossFit is a tremendous step in that direction as we promote the great sport of Olympic weightlifting.”


The Crossfit / USA Weightlifting Open will feature athletes competing in three disciplines: the Olympic-style snatch and clean & jerk as well as a third CrossFit event called the Triplet. The Triplet will be as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of six squat cleans (55kg men / 30kg women), 12 pull-ups and 24 double unders.


Athletes will compete in the seven women’s and eight men’s Olympic weight divisions as they vie for titles.


"We're very pleased to offer this unique competition with USA Weightlifting. Athletes will now be able to compete in a multi-modal event that includes both weightlifting using standard international competition rules and a 10-minute CrossFit Triplet. Not only will the winners of each division have to demonstrate outstanding strength, power and weightlifting technique, but also the additional fitness required for the CrossFit Triplet," said Dave Castro, CrossFit's Director of Training. "A huge thanks toRick Adams and USAW for hosting the event."


Schedule and registration information will be posted soon on both the USA Weightlifting Web site ( as well as the CrossFit Web site (  For additional information, contact Courtney Kulick, USA Weightlifting Event and Operations Manager, at
