Member Suspension

The Disciplinary Committee has ruled that Mr John Smith's behaviour and activity on social media has brought British Powerlifting and Scottish Powerlifting into disrepute. This is in contravention of British Powerlifting By-Law 16.5 Bringing the sport into disrepute by means of his comments, published articles, TV or radio broadcasts or posts on social media commits an offence.  He is therefore suspended from membership of British Powerlifting and any associated activities until 24th October 2019.

British Powerlifting is the only UK powerlifting organisation that carries out independent WADA compliant drug testing. In 2017 we conducted some 140 anti-doping tests, all at our own expense. GB lifters in World Championships are registered with the IPF for Out of Competition Testing (OCT).
