Mash Elite Performance has four Olympic Hopefuls on their way to the USA Weightlifting World Championships in Turkmenistan this November 1-10.
Our team Mash Elite Weightlifting just competed at the American Open Series in Las Vegas, which was the last qualifier for the Senior World Championships (that’s the Open or best of the best), and the Youth World Championships (17 and under).
