Former Olympic gold medalist Tara Knott-Cunningham will be inducted in to the York Barbell Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Along with a prolific weightlifting career, Cunningham most notably won a gold medal at the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney, Australia, becoming the first U.S. gold medalist in weightlifting since Chuck Vinci in 1960.

The Hall of fame induction ceremony will coincide with a two-day East Coast Gold Weightlifting competition at the York Barbell facility at 3300 Board Road on both Saturday and Sunday.

The event begins at 8:30 am on Saturday and there is no charge for admission.
