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.

We will be advertising for someone to take on this role in due course, but in the meantime anyone interested should contact the CEO for more details of what's involved.

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).
