WPC 2010

...was a tremendous year for WPC International Powerlifting. I had the opportunity to be invited to WPC Championships in Hungry, Azerbaijan, and Finland. There were other highly successful WPC International Championships in The Eurasia Group and the States. Each championship focused of safety, lifter satisfaction, judging credibility, and fun!

As an group, the WPC-Congress has work together in the best interest of the lifter first. In 2011, the International Championship schedule was developed to give all lifters, in all countries an opportunity to compete and experience the greatest and strongest powerlifting in the history of man.

We are growing and "others" are not! For me, I have had a tremendous 2010 as the President elect and I thank you. In 2011, the best and strongest is yet to come................
