American Open

Brigid Hamill will be competing in the American Open on Dec. 10th in Cincinnati, OH. While she was in Lexington, KY, she stopped by Central KY Weightlifting to get a workout. We wish her the best of luck at the American Open!!

USA Weightlifting is pleased to announce that the 2010 American Open will be held from Dec. 10-12 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
"Cincinnati is a first-class city and we are looking forward to bringing one of our most prestigious events to Clermont County," said USA Weightlifting CEO Rick Adams (Colorado Springs, Colo.)  
The American Open attracts nearly 200 of the top weightlifters in the United States, including Olympians and World Team members.
"Everybody here is super excited," said Chris Cleary (Fairfield, Ohio), meet director for the 2010 American Open and president of Cincinnati Weightlifting.  "We're looking forward to having a good turn-out from spectators.  Because we have relationships with a lot of schools and teams in the area, we hope to make it appealing to non-lifters so they can come out and see what the sport is all about."
The event will be held at the Holiday Inn East Gate, 4501 East Gate Blvd., which also will serve as the host hotel for the event.
