It is with regret that we have received the resignation of Dean Bowring as Chair of the Athlete's Commission.  Dean is an outstanding lifter, past and present and has represented the views of lifters admirably.  The Board wishes to thank him for his service since the post was created and are pleased he is continuing in his role as Head Coach for the Senior Equipped Team.

All are subject to Out of Competition Testing (OCT). Read More >
