British Powerlifting is very sad to announce the sudden passing of Roger Powell at the age of 86.

Our sincere condolences go out to all Roger's family at this difficult time.
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 are subject to Out of Competition Testing (OCT). Read More >
