WerkSanUSA Introduces Special Edition Weightlifting Set, Proceeds to Benefit USA Weightlifting

(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – WerkSanUSA, the official barbell sponsor of USA Weightlifting, has partnered with USAW to develop special edition weightlifting sets and plates with the USAW name and logo.
A limited number of both full sets and individual plates are available for sale at and a portion of the proceeds of each sale will benefit USA Weightlifting. 
More than 200 USAW members voted for the winning design of the equipment at the 2010 National Weightlifting Championships in Peoria, Ill. The weights also will be used at the American Open, Dec. 10-12, in Cincinnati where they will be available for purchase. 
WerkSan Barbells will unveil Special USAW Edition competition and training barbell sets at the upcoming American Open.   The sets were designed following receipt of USAW members’ input, and feature the USA Weightlifting name in text and the three color USAW logo.
“The new equipment looks great, and we all know about the quality of WerkSan equipment as it was used at the recent World Championships in Turkey,” said USA Weightlifting Interim CEO Laurie Lopez.  “This program is another in a long series of support endeavors WerkSan Barbells has conducted for USAW and our athletes over the years.  When coupled with WerkSan’s ongoing sponsorship support, WerkSan has displayed a remarkable dedication to our organization and the sport of weightlifting in the USA.”
