What is Powerlifting?
Powerlifting was established to find the strongest men and women. Athletes compete in the 3 movements Backsquat, Bench Press and Deadlift. Every athlete has 3 attempts in each movement, the best attempt of each movement counts towards a total, the athlete moving the most weight wins. There are also Single Lift Competitions, where athletes compete against others in each movement, without a total.
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 founded 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.
