Final Update: After a hard-fought Pan Am Championships, the U.S. men have earned one Olympic spot. USA Weightlifting has confirmed that spot will go to Kendrick Farris. The 2016 Rio Games will be Farris’ third straight Olympics.

The Pan American Weightlifting Championships are currently being held in Cartagena, Colombia. While the U.S. Women have already secured and awarded three Olympic spots, the U.S. Men have yet to secure a trip to Rio. There are several pathways for American men to earn an Olympic spot — we’ve outlined them all here — but the clearest way is through Pan Ams, where they’d need to place within the top 7 teams among countries that do not currently have a spot. So while Brazilian and Colombian athletes are competing, their placements will not count toward points totals.

Six men’s scores can be counted toward a team’s placing, and while the U.S. was originally scheduled to send eight men, Alex Lee bombed out and Norik Vardanian withdrew due to injury. That means the remaining U.S. Men — Travis Cooper, James Tatum, Kendrick Farris, Donovan Ford, Wes Kitts, and Caine Wilkes — will all have their points counted. (We’ve analyzed their chances and predicted their approximate finishes here.)

Below, we’ve posted final results scoreboards for each men’s weight class through +105kg (Saturday evening) from Pan Ams, which we’ll updated as the event progresses. At the bottom of the article, we’ve included an overall scoreboard that calculates total men’s team points, indicating which seven countries are in position to earn Olympic spots.
