MARQUETTE, Mich. — Northern Michigan University’s Olympic Training Site is hosting the 2014 National Olympic Weightlifting Camp Sunday, July 27 to Sunday, Aug. 3. This is the last camp of the summer for the NMU-OTS program.

This event features athletes from around the country of all skill levels and ages and gives them an opportunity to train alongside University World, Junior World and Pan-American team members. NMU-OTS resident coach Vance Newgard will be coaching the participants, with help from our resident athletes.

Coach Newgard said of the camp, “We wanted to provide an opportunity to athletes from across the country to improve on their skill work and learn new techniques. It also gives us a chance to meet future recruits and show them the fantastic facilities we have at NMU.”
