In the clean & jerk, Rogers again made all three lifts (122, 126, and 132kg) to grab two more American University Records for that lift and the total. Overall, Rogers finished 20kg ahead of second place finisher and two-time Olympian Marie-Eve Beauchemin-Nadeau of Canada.

This was the third day of competition. Team USA weightlifters won medals on both Day 1 and Day 2 in impressive displays.

Rogers’ is the second overall (total) gold for Team USA so far; Kerri Keegan won gold in the women’s 48kg class on Day 1.
