My name is Wes Kitts. I train out of California Strength and I represent Team USA as an Olympic Weightlifter in the -109kg weight class category. I intend to compete at the highest levels of the sport, win titles and continue to set records!
I was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee and have competed in sports all my life. In high school, I was named four times to the all district team for soccer and was an all-state running which led to earning a full ride scholarship to play football at Austin Peay State University. After graduating college, I opened my own gym and began training myself and others. While running my gym and working with athletes of all sports, I discovered my passion for Olympic lifting. I had some early success in my first few meets and was sought out by California Strength to come on as their premier weightlifter.
Fast forward and now I train full time as an Olympic weightlifter and am doing everything possible to make sure I am the front runner for the 2020 US Olympic Team. Thank you for your support!
