What is Powerlifting?
Every athlete has three attempts in the following three exercises (Powerlifts). The total of the best lifts count towards the total.
You can also compete in Single Lift Competitions where you choose to compete in one, two, or all three lifts, but get ranked separately in each lift.
The next event is the Swiss Single Lift Championship in Colombier (Saturday April 23rd).
There are raw competitions where only a belt is allowed and there are equipped competitions (single ply => one layer of suits/equipment and multi ply => several layers of equipment) where athletes wear assistant suits, briefs and knee wraps to be able to lift much more weight.
Team CrossFit Basel is competing raw.
What is the WDFPF?
The World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation was established to give drug free lifters a home as in most strength sports there is no or little drug testing. In fact there is no other sports federation (including ALL olympic sports!) in the world today that knows such severe punishment like the WDFPF. If an athlete is tested positive he will be banned FOR LIFE and all past results will be erased.
