Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, few Tournaments were held in 2021 with World and European Records. Many Tournaments did not take place, including the 2021 World Championships in India and the European Championships in the UK.
The Tournament 2021 WPF SCOTTISH OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS POWERLIFTING, BENCH PRESS & DEAD LIFT was held in the UK on June 19, 2021, the Tournament 2021 WPF BRITISH OPEN INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS POWERLIFTING, BENCH PRESS & DEAD LIFT on July 25, 2021. The 2021 WPF WORLD CUP POWERLIFTING, BENCH PRESS, DEAD LIFT & MULTI REP BENCH PRESS was held in Russia on August 21-22, 2021. This is more than last year, when there were only 2 Tournaments.
For the 2021 WPF WORLD CUP, about 250 Athletes competed and many World and European Records were set.
I also hope that we will be able to hold another Tournament on December 12, 2021 BRITISH OPEN INTERNATIONAL RECORD BREAKERS CHAMPIONSHIPS BENCH PRESS & DEAD LIFT. I hope that many new WPF World Records will be set in this Tournament.
