2018 CPU Westerns: Team Manitoba Meet Report

Team Manitoba at 2018 CPU Western Canadian Championships

By Mark Oxer, Team Manitoba Head Coach

 

The 2018 Westerns in Edmonton Alberta; were the largest non-national event in Western Canadian history with over 260 lifters competing. There were two platforms with multiple sessions per day. Manitoba sent a team of 18 lifters to the event. The three day event had lifters from Manitoba lifting on each of the three days.

Friday was the busiest day at the event for Team Manitoba with 13 of our lifters participating; Friday morning the Juniors and Subjuniors participated in 3 lift and Friday afternoon/evening (after a bit of a delayed start) saw all of the bench only athletes lift. Saturday was the busiest day at the event as a whole as it was both male and female open lifters competing in 3 lift; Manitoba had 4 lifters competing on Saturday, 3 in the morning session and 1 in the afternoon. Sunday was the quietest day at the competition but still saw a lot of great lifting, Sunday was the day the Masters lifters competed in 3 lift; Manitoba had two lifters participating.

2018 MPA Provincials Best Club Award Info

MPA Provincials Best Club Award Formula

  • For the 2018 Provincials, we have 5 MPA Clubs registered and vying for the inaugural “Best MPA Club” award:
    • Starke Powerlifting
    • Brickhouse Barbell Club
    • Iron Image
    • The Power Moves
    • Team Wild Wind

The Formula is as follows:

  • For each event category (i.e. Classic PL, Classic BP, Equipped PL, Equipped BP), the Top 5 Highest Wilks Coefficient Scores will be utilized.
  • The sum of these scores will then be multiplied by the percent of total eligible lists scores.
  • Example: If there were 48 Total Eligible Scores, made up of 10 Equipped PL, 15 Classic PL, 25 Classic PL, 8 Equipped BP eligible top 5 Wilks scores, the formula may look as follows for a team that entered 5 lifters in each category:
  • (top 5 Equipped PL Scores Sum) x (10/48) + (Top 5 Raw PL Scores Sum) x (15/48) + (Top 5 Classic BP Scores Sum)  x (25/38) + (Top 5 Equipped BP Scores Sum) x (8/48)

Good Luck to everyone!
