Powerlifting is a strength sport consisting of 3 disciplines, the squat, the benchpress and the deadlift. Each lifter is allowed 3 attempts at maximal weights for each discipline and the winner will be decided by the most amount of weight lifted for all the 3 disciplines in their respective age and weight categories.
Last year, the Singapore Powerlifting Invitationals 2015 registered 94 lifters where numerous national records were broken with the biggest lift exceeding 300 kg! Invited nations including Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei, registered a number of their best lifters to compete against Singapore athletes.
Held in conjuction with Multi-Disciplinary Sports and Fitness Competitions & EXPO 2016, SPI16 is expected to draw an even larger group of competitive athletes, both local and foreign.
