Injury Survey 2016

Dear British Powerlifting Members,

Many thanks for your support so far in our study looking at profiling the injuries in UK powerlifting. I am a Sport and Exercise Medicine Doctor working in elite sport (England Rugby League) and Areeb is a Medical student who wants to work with elite athletes in the future.

From our review of the literature, there hasn't been a study looking specifically at the most common injuries sustained in UK powerlifters and we'd like to do this to give us a better understanding of the injuries and hopefully reduce them moving forward. Once we have enough questionnaires completed (we're aiming for at least half of your members) then will write a paper and aim to get this published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Your organisation will get acknowledgment of course.

So far we have had 120 people fill in the questionnaire from you very kindly putting a Facebook post and link to your news feed on your website. I think an email to your members would hopefully generate an even bigger response.

Dr Marwan Al-Dawoud, MBChB, MRCGP, MFSEM (UK), DipSEM

Anti Doping Rule Violation


Mr Robert Hazelton was selected for anti-doping testing at a NI Raw Power Competition 18th June 2016 and his A Sample was found to contain terbutaline, which is listed as a beta-2 agonist (S3) under the 2016 Prohibited List of the WADA Code. No request for B sample testing was made and no TUE submitted. This is a violation GBPF Anti-Doping Policy (Feb 2016).

The Disciplinary Committee have therefore ruled Mr Hazelton be ineligible to be a member of, or take part in any British Powerlifting competition, for a period of four years effective from June 18th 2016
