Dear Powerlifting family,
We, at Powerlifting (Singapore), have always stated our serious commitment to drug-free competition. We believe that this is the only way for a sport to be successful in the long run – that is why all global sport bodies recognised by Sport-Accord and the International Olympic Council comply fully with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) drug control policies. The IPF and Powerlifting (Singapore) are proud to uphold this requirement.
We are happy to announce that we have officially adopted Anti-Doping Singapore’s (ADS) drug control policy as our own. This will mean that you, as the lifter, can be assured that Powerlifting (Singapore) will invest resources in doping control and education in order to keep the playing field clean. We take pride in our drug tested events and high standards of competition; this step is an official recognition of our efforts thus far. Our relationship began with ADS’ presence at SPO13 and this official partnership will help take the sport to greater heights and eliminate cheating in our beloved sport.
Your efforts in training and chasing that PR should not be made light of by those who gain an advantage from illegal activity. We have always done our best to protect our lifters from cheating, and now you have our official commitment to the world’s largest Anti Doping program.
Here’s wishing everyone strong lifts! We have been working hard behind the scenes and will soon be announcing some special recognition for our pioneer members; we hope to see you all at the Singapore Powerlifting Invitationals in August!
