Big News for USA Weightlifting  

The current team of USA Weightlifting athletes are some of the strongest and most competitive that the organization has ever seen, and they all stand a solid chance at medaling for the USA in 2020. Given the high skills of these athletes, USA Weightlifting is hoping to send a full team of athletes to compete in Tokyo on the world’s biggest stage for the first time since 1960. 

What is #TokyoStrong? 

Sending a full team of athletes to the games is costly. USA Weightlifting is one of the most underfunded USOC sports, they need financial support to fund their journey to Tokyo. #TokyoStrong is a fundraising initiative led by Ascent & USA Weightlifting that will raise money to support athlete travel, build a training facility in Tokyo and send additional key support staff, such as trainers, coaches and nutritionists to the Tokyo next summer.   

How can you support USA Weightlifting? 

Ascent is dedicated to not only supporting USA Weightlifting athletes' muscle health and recovery, but also in their efforts to raise funds for their journey to Tokyo. Ascent will be offering product bundles, where a portion of proceeds will go directly to USA Weightlifting athletes. These donations will support all of the team’s initiatives and athletes, including Ascent-powered athlete, Jourdan Delacruz, who is currently training and competing for the chance to compete in 2020.

"We’re so grateful to the donors that believe in our athlete’s Olympic dreams enough to support them on their journey to competing on the biggest stage of their lives. We at USA Weightlifting are doing everything possible to help our athletes reach the podium next summer in Tokyo. A donation to Tokyo Strong will ensure the once-in-a-generation opportunity for USA Weightlifting’s athletes to win several medals becomes a reality.”
