Another Country Added to WPC Border War
From Joe Smolinski
I am happy to announce that the UK will be an official country of the 2014 3rd Annual WPC/AWPC BORDER WAR BenchPress Championships in Detroit Michigan. Emma James- President of the WPC affiliated British Powerlifting Union has already placed the event on the schedule for 2014! We ALL look forward to 2014 and making this international Bench Press only event even better.
The 2nd Annual 2013 event isn’t in the books yet, but you will see some changes on July 20, 2013. We will be in the bigger Grand Ballroom for 2013, we will have an internet live feed, we will be showcasing a state of the art wireless light tree (as seen at this years AAPF Nationals in Grand Rapids, MI), and we will be utilizing a Metal Competition bench with safety rails and loading jacks. Get those entries in for 2013, entry Deadline is June 20, 2013 for the 2nd annual event, and spread the word that this even keeps growing!
The First Annual Border War BenchPress Championships was held on July 21, 2012 at the Detroit Metro Marriot – a shuttle ride away from Detroit Metro Airport. In 2012 we had 70 participants equally spread between the RAW morning Session and the Equipped Multi ply Session
