Dear Athletes!

Proudly announced that in December, 2016, Moscow would become the capital of the World Powerlifting - be held for the first time in the capital of the world championship GPA / IPO. Of course, we all remember what an incredible level of the holding of such launches was raised as to the "peace" GPA in Sydney in 2014, when, on the box made kirill сарычев, Andrey Маланичев, Andrey Belyaev, Konstantine Konstantinov, Zahir Khudayarov, Mikhail Кокlyaev, Wayne Howlett Odell, Manuel, Benedict Mаgnusson and other stars of our sport. We promise that will spare no effort to our tournament called no less enthusiasm throughout the world and has become a new milestone of the development of alternative powerlifting. We will try to surprise of all, and, in something even to themselves, and to make the tournament truly memorable for each participant. We hope that, with your support, we'll make it!
