Standout performances during November earned Mattie Rogers Best of November honours for the Team USA Awards presented by Dow, the United States Olympic Committee announced yesterday.
Mattie Rogers earned a Bronze Medal in the Clean and Jerk with a 133 kg lift at the IWF World Championships in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. A three-time American record holder, Rogers defended her Clean and Jerk Bronze Medal from the 2017 World Championships, becoming the first American weightlifter since 1999 to medal at back-to-back World Championships. She is also the first American woman to accomplish the feat since 1994.
Other awardees were figure skater Nathan Chen and the U.S. Women’s Four Nations Cup Ice Hockey Team.
About the Team USA Awards
Each National Governing Body may nominate one female, one male and one team per discipline. An internal nominating committee selects five nominees from both the male and female categories, and three from the team category to advance to the voting round. Votes received from NGB representatives and select members of the media account for 50 per cent of the final tally, with the other half determined by online fan voting via TeamUSA.org/Awards.
