Para Powerlifting – Sheru Classic 2013

Para Powerlifting

Paralympic powerlifting is an adaptation of the sport of powerlifting for athletes with disabilities. The only discipline in Paralympic powerlifting is the bench press.

Para Powerlifting is open to male and female athletes with a physical disability. It has no classification system save the minimal disability criteria and, like its Olympic counterpart, is divided into weight categories.

For men the weight bands start at 48kg and go up to +100kg and for women they start at 40kg and go up to +82.5kg.

Men and women compete in a horizontal lying position (on their backs) on a specially designed bench. An assistant gives the bar to the competitor at the level of his/her outstretched arms. The athlete then lowers the bar to their chest, holds it immobile for a short period and then lifts and holds it with locked elbows. The athlete must complete this sequence within 2 minutes for the lift to be valid.

SHERU CLASSIC aim to encourage athletes with physical challenges to achieve what they Believe.
