Pan American Championships 2019 – Day 3

Women’s 64 kg

Considering this is an Olympic category, it was surprising that there were no Robi scores of over 900 here. It looks like there is definitely an opportunity for a lifter from the non Olympic 71kg category to move down to 64 and stand a good chance of taking the Pan-American slot for Tokyo.

Despite being a non-Olympic category, this was a much-anticipated group for USA weightlifting fans, who looked forward to seeing their lifters Kate Nye and Mattie Rogers going head-to-head. It did prove to be entertaining, with Rogers trying a 140 clean and jerk for the win but missing the jerk, leaving Nye with the gold.

Kate Nye broke a slew of USA and Pan-American records on her way to victory.
