Riga, of 2015 European Championships..........

The site of the 2015 WPC World Championships...

Porto, Portugal............voted "Best European 2014 Destination"............. cold is it in Chicago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2014 Year in review....

In 2014, I attended four major WPC/AWPC Championships. Over the next several days I am going to share with you the direction we are going and the results we have accomplished.

The WPC has had two owners. Our current owner, Mr. Kidder has given the freedom of direction to the WPC Congress to develop our sport internationally. He has a much stronger futuristic vision for WPC Powerlifting. The WPC is in more counties than ever, well respected, and copied by others. Our drug policy is the most realistic in the World, much more realistic than the Olympics or any professional sport. Every International Championship has major improvements for the safety of the lifter, the excitement for the fans and WPC records are the only true honest and credible World records.

Thank You for being part of the WPC/AWPC!

Year in review....

I waited till after all the World Championships from the "other" organizations to post. I watch the internet streams and read the results and wait for the reviews....

...the ultimate strength sportsman demands the ultimate championship and that championship was the 2014 WPC Championships in West Palm Beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...this is K2...the deadliest mountain in the World and possible future site of the WPC Championship...

You can't make this shit up!!!!

"The former track star and longtime coach got hit with an eight-year doping ban Wednesday after arbitrators found a series of discussions concluded with Drummond convincing Gay to take the banned substance, and carrying it to Europe for him.
In addition to coaching Gay, Drummond, 46, also served as relay coach for the U.S. track team at the London Olympics and as chairman of the athletes' advisory committee for USA Track and Field.
"Coaches have an inherent responsibility to protect athletes -- not take advantage of them -- but to ensure that they receive the support, training and advice they need to win fairly and in accordance with the rules," said Travis Tygart, CEO of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which announced the suspension.
Gay received a one-year ban last year for testing positive for a steroid precursor DHEA -- a penalty that was reduced by a year because he provided information that led to USADA's case against Drummond." in summary...a USA chairman and London/olympic coach banned for 8 years and his prime star turned him in to get a year off his sentence...

World Winning tips from Wayne Pullum...Read them TWICE!!!!!

Make plans to arrive at the venue in time to make weigh-ins . Know the times of weigh-in , as it will be the only times in which you will be able to record your weight . This will give you time to adjust your weigh and return if necessary.
Make sure you have you current membership card , as you will be charged without it.
Make a list of all of your gear and check each item off as you pack. ( don't forget your singlet and D/L shoes)
Know the lifting order of your fight and check it at each attempt .
Prepare to be ready when the bar is called loaded. You will be timed out after 1 minute.
Know the rack height on both the Monolifts and bench on the main platform. The clock will be running if it has to be adjusted.
Have an extra set of knee wraps rolled and ready in case one unravels . You will not have time to roll it back up.
After your attempt , go straight to the score table to give your next attempt not wait....You have 1 minute.
