Welcome to Powerlifting

Athletes draw lots to determine order of weigh-in and lifts. After the athletes are categorized within the 10 different weight classes (male and female), they each lift three times (competing in their respective weight class). The heaviest “good lift” (within the weight class) is the lift used for final placing in the competition.
