The 2022 Pan American Weightlifting Championships are underway in Bogotá, Colombia, having kicked off on July 24 and concluding on July 29, 2022. The contest features 265 athletes from 23 nations.

Per USA Weightlifting‘s press release, Team USA consists of 17 weightlifters representing 11 states: California, Florida, Georgia, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.
