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!

MPA has a new IPF Cat II Referee

Please join the MPA in congratulating Susan Haywood who successfully passed her IPF Cat II Referee Exam and practical test two weeks ago at the 2018 IPF Classic World Powerlifting Championship in Calgary, Alberta. In doing so Susan became the FIRST Internationally certified Female Referee in Canada. We are very proud of Susan’s accomplishments. Please stop by the 2018 MPA Provincial Powerlifting Championships in Selkirk MB. on Saturday to watch the event and congratulate Susan in person.
