ARNOLD SPORTS FESTIVAL TO EXPAND IN 2008
USA Powerlifting, America’s Premiere Powerlifting Organization to Present World Level Competition at the Arnold Sports Festival 2008
Columbus, Ohio --- USA Powerlifting (USAPL) will join the Arnold Sports Festival as a key partner in 2008. USAPL, the only US member of the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF), is headquartered in Columbia City, Indiana. The membership includes more than 5,500 men and women who compete with an organizational commitment to drug free performance.
“The Arnold Sports Festival will celebrate 20 years of excellence in sports performance in 2008,” said Jim Lorimer, Producer of the annual event. “Each year, the event grows with additional sports and competitors. USAPL shares our commitment to the presentation of a professionally organized competition based on the principles of sportsmanship and a level playing field.”
The IPF is the oldest and largest international governing body for the sport of powerlifting, and is recognized by the International Olympic Committee. Founded in 1971, the IPF includes member federations from more than 100 countries. The IPF also has an established relationship with WADA and pursues the strictest of antidoping procedures.
Dr. Larry Maile, President of USA Powerlifting, added, “USA Powerlifting is committed to the honor and integrity of competitive powerlifting. We are thrilled to join the Arnold Sports Festival in the presentation of this sport on a fair competitive platform emphasizing honor and respect. Our international affiliation with the esteemed International Powerlifting Federation will bring added attention to the sport and the Arnold Sports Festival.”
This sucks huge donkey balls!! USGAYPL...WTF??
does this mean no equipment or something...someone explain it to me
single ply, walked out and "drug free"
ok so 1200 totals cool
i actually like watching the top usapl/ipf guys, but it's just not the same as the freaks
there is a 165 guy who just squatted 804 in the gym, but he only benches 196 and pulls 200
You also have judges with a holier than thou attitude, they use colored paddles instead of lights, you can't ask what you did wrong, you can't have a pocket on your t-shirt, you can't wear any type of clothing or shoes that don't give money to the organization, breaking parallel means hamstrings on calves, it's drug tested-not drug free-there is a difference, single ply gear only, no open back shirts, no monolift, no deadlift bar, these are just off the top of my head.
jesus christ it sounds like the ifbb, it wont last esp when the crowd diminishs
wow that sounds gay as shit
They just want to make sure everyone is drug free, like all the pro bodybuilders at the Arnold!
Bunch of fucking faggots. Also KK should be publicly executed for this bullshit.
Well, its not stemming from the KK shit. The backers of the Arnold are worried about the steroid image associated with pro powerlifting
well some obese ham juiced to the gills keels at the expo(50k people)...it will be a shit storm...some stupid dry peeled BB'er dies at the show only 1500 people see it and its expected
