Team USA wrapped up the 2016 FISU University World Championships on Thursday exactly how the Americans started it -- with medals.

Matthew McCarty and Evan Graybill represented Team USA well at their rookie international meets, earning three medals between the two of them in Merida, Mexico.

While McCarty bombed his snatch, he was able to lock it up and come back to go 3 for 3 on his clean and jerk. He finished with 182kg/401lb to earn a bronze medal.

Graybill's consistency carried him through to a bronze medal in the snatch (147kg/324lb) and a bronze in the total (318kg).

Nick Saccente and Javier Pagliery were Team USA's final male lifters, competing in the 105kg+ division.

Saccente finished ninth overall with a 147kg/324lb snatch and a 185kg/408lb clean and jerk, while Pagliery finished eighth with a 150kg/330lb snatch and a 195kg/430lb clean and jerk.

Marissa Klingseis finished up the women's side of the competition with an awesome performance, taking silver in both disciplines and the total. Her performance was a PR for her on an international stage and earned Klingseis her second international medal as a senior lifter.

Klingseis finished with a 107kg/235lb snatch and a 142kg/313lb clean and jerk.
