Taking the #1 strength and conditioning program and combining it with one of the oldest Olympic sports in the world. The Crossfit / USA Weightlifting Open will feature athletes competing in three disciplines: the Olympic-style snatch and clean & jerk as well as a third CrossFit event called the Triplet.
