“Let’s get serious!”
Over the Vesak Day long weekend, our Para-powerlifting athletes Melvyn and Kalai travelled to KL to participate in the Malaysian IPC circuit. With coaches Say and Hidayat taking them through their paces, our athletes placed 1st in their respective weight classes! It’s looking good for their progress towards the Asian IPC Championships in Almaty, Kazhakstan in July!
On the three-lift scene, the true elite of the powerlifting world are about to gather in cooler climes. Over 800 athletes are expected for the IPF Classic World Championships in Salo, Finland. This is the largest IPF meet ever, and what better place for Singapore to make her debut? The lifters competing here were once our idols, now they’ve become the competition.
With fully packed divisions and stringent doping control, this World Championships is the real deal. Singapore will be represented by six athletes and two officials, all powered by passion. TeamSG will be fighting hard at the SEA Games, and Powerlifting Singapore will do the same, carrying our flag to Finland!
