Where it all began

The Canusa is the cumulative brainchild of Matt Adamcheck and Kit Bailey. Both are avid fans, athletes, and coaches in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting living and breathing it on a daily basis. Both were wanting more meets their athletes could compete in and more events they could spectate so instead of waiting for someone else to create them they decided to grab the bull by the horns and do it themselves. 

Canusa is for everyone and by everyone. We could not host these annual meets without the help of our volunteer teams but also the athletes and coaches that attend it. We want to continue to grow the meets until they are drawing in athletes from all over along with the full spectrum of skill levels. Both beginner and pro are welcome and are promised a smooth and welcoming experience.
