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 has a fully WADA compliant anti-doping programme, which is independently administered by the IPF. All of our anti-doping testing is carried out at our own expense. Elite GB lifters are selected by the IPF for inclusion in the Registered Testing Pool (RT) along with 144 lifters in the Testing Pool and National Testing Pool. All are subject to Out of Competition Testing (OCT). Read More >
