***Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the KY State Meet has been postponed*** 

AS soon as we can confirm a new date we will confirm with our Kentucky Weightlifting Community! 



The 2020 Kentucky LWC State  and Open Championships is coming to Lexington, KY for the first time in history!  The event will take place at the University of Kentucky Nutter Weightroom and hosted by local club, Big Blue Weightlifting.  

All IWF rules will be followed and all new IWF weight categories will be used.  Kentucky LWC also updated its state records to reflect all age and weight categories this year.  This will be a great time to establish the New State Records for the state of Kentucky.  

You must be a resident of Kentucky to set a state record but lifters in other states may participate.  State record holders must provide a Kentucky state issued ID to be granted a state record.  A singlet must be worn on the platform.  

Awards will be given based on division and weight class for Youth, Junior, Senior, and Masters divisions as well as for best overall male and female lifters. 

We will cap the Championships to 150 lifters.  


$100 registration will end on March 27, 2020 at midnight. 

Price goes up to $120 until April 17, 2020.  


Each registered athlete will receive one coaches pass. 

Any additional questions should be directed to the Kentucky LWC at kentuckylwc@gmail.com or Melissa at bigbluestrength@gmail.com
