Dear lifters, officials and friends over the World
The IPF Executive committee has decided to postpone the World Classic Powerlifting Championships in agreement with the organizer from Belarus. I want to thank the organizer that they agreed with this and with our new date we proposed them.The new date will be from 24.09 to 04.10.2020
The preliminary nominations will be hide so that nobody need to add again all the lifters and a new preliminary dateline and new final dateline will be of course starting in due time. We will prepare now all the invitation’s for all our postpone Worlds and making sure that it will be soon published on our webpage and on our calendar.
The reason’s are that we still not knowing when the quarantine in a lot of the countries around the World’s will be over and we do not know when the airlines start flying again around the Worlds. An other reason is also that our lifters cannot adequate prepare for the Worlds because all the gym’s are closed and so it has become necessary to take this decision.
Healthy is the most important and let’s hope that all this will finish soon. You can help to make sure it finish when you following the restriction’s from the Government’s. Stay at home and stay safe
