MPA is Recruiting CPU Nationals 2018 Coaches/Handlers!

MPA is Recruiting CPU Nationals 2018 Coaches/Handlers!

1. As the sport expands and coaching continues to be formalized, MPA is in the process of developing a Team Manitoba Nationals coaching system. For the 2018 National Championships, we are looking for coaches to handle Manitoba athletes for full sessions and/or days. Compensation will be provided based on contribution. Interested parties may apply at manitobapowerlifting@gmail.com .

2. We are composing a list of athletes who would benefit from this service i.e. those who are attending Nationals without a designated coach/handler. If you fall within this category, please contact MPA via manitobapowerlifting@gmail.com.

Records Update – 17 Wing November 25, 2017

As of now all records have been updated from this past weekends 17 Wing competition. A total of 45+ records were broken! As our sport is growing so is the strength of our lifters. We are now breaking records that are 30 + years old! A record to make mention of is the 66 Kg Equipped total record of 495kg by lifter Dwayne Feakes which has not been broken since April 1987. It was broken by lifter Jayson Palapuz with his 517.5kg total this past weekend. I will imagine more of this older records will be broken in the future.
