Headcoach Ramon Gysin (Host, Secretaire SDFPF):
„I am very happy with the performance of our team, they did a great job. Plenty of personal bests and swiss records being achieved. Thanks to Marco who was in charge of the event, thanks to all volunteers for their hard work, thanks to the judges and my fellow SDFPF comitee, congrats to all fellow athletes, we spent a great day of lifting together.
The youngest athlete was 15, the oldest 79. Everybody can compete in Powerlifting. Strength Training is important for Health and the Sport of Powerlifting is all about showing control over the loads you move, the rules are very strict. Try it! Lifting weights is not dangerous, not doing anything IS dangerous.
“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”—Socrates
“Don’t cheat the world of your contribution. Give it what you’ve got.” —Steven Pressfield
Body, mind and soul, all needs to be in balance. To function, the body needs some sort of resistance training, otherwise muscles will become weak, you are more vulnerable. A fit body gives me more options. And a fit body is necessary for a fit mind. So I strongly believe in being fit to be able to contribute more AND LONGER. Happy lifting!“

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.
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 or she will be banned FOR LIFE and all past results will be erased.
The WDFPF is also an inclusive federation, all athletes, no matter what age, are competing at the same venue at the same competition together, ranked in their respective weight and age classes.
