AWPC World Championships

8-10 September 2017, Lisle, Illinois, USA 

This World Championships has been moved forward so is now literally the week after the British Championships 2017 which is a problem. the ABPU/BPU have decided that rather than make you compete the week before and then fly out the next day (not ever going to happen!) that the top 2 from the British Championships last year will automatically get an invitation followed by the highest qualifers from the regional qualifiers. This is the only way we can think of doing this! Remember you can also compete to lift at the WPC World Championships in Moscow, you guys get way more benefits! 

I would appreciate it if you would register your interest with me in lifting as a current British Title Holder please by emailing emma@britishpowerliftingunion.co.uk please.
