Weightlifting 1982 World Cup Power Lifting Championship


Power lifting is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on three lifts…squat, bench press and dead lift.  As in the sport of Olympic weightlifting….it involves lifting weights in three attempts. Power lifting evolved from a sport known as “odd lifts”….which followed the same three-attempt format but used a wider variety of events….akin to strongman competition….and eventually odd lifts became standardized to the current three.
