Crowning a Champion

WSO Championships

The DMV always shows out at USA Weightlifting national level competitions, and we consistently produce some of the top athletes in the country. That’s why each year, we’ll be crowning our own DMV Champions by way of the WSO Championships.


This Year

2024 WSO Championships

For the first time ever, we’re opening up the pool and soliciting bids to host the 2024 WSO Championships! We invite anyone with potentially suitable space to host the championships to submit a bid by completing this form.  

The host club will receive 100% of the spectator fees charged as part of the event. This will obviously depend on how many people show up, but for many meets, this can be upwards of $2,000 – $3,000. Not bad for closing the space down for a day or two, and no risk of losing money on the event!
You do not need to have hosted a meet in the past in order to host the championships! The WSO committee has experience running high-quality meets and will take the lead for coordinating logistics, helping with space planning and traffic flow, providing sufficient equipment, etc. If you can provide the space, we can provide the people power. 
If you have any questions at all around what this entails or whether your space might be suitable, please feel free to reach out to me directly or email the WSO board at
