28th November - 4th December 2022

Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships

Auckland, New Zealand

The form below is for expressions of interest, which will be open for 4 weeks (closing date of 5th June). After this, teams will be selected based on the highest total, IPF GL points and also how active lifters have been in the division (e.g., volunteering at competitions).

Lifters will be required to fund the entire trip themselves including (but not limited to),transport, accommodation, entry fees, anti-doping fees and any team kit required.

The above being said, the Commonwealth Championships can be a trip of a lifetime. You only need to speak to one of the previous Welsh team members to know that it is more than worth it.

If selected, you will be contacted by Tom Morgan (Head Coach and Team Manager) with further information.

*Please Note* if you are successful in gaining a place on the Commonwealth Team, you will not be eligible to compete at the Home Nations Championships on the 10th December.

Covid Rules

The competition will be run in accordance with Welsh Government guidance.

All attendees must provide a negative lateral flow test result within 24 hours of the competition start (per our previous competitions) – this includes lifters, coaches, and volunteers (including referees). This measure is to ensure we do our best to keep everyone involved as safe as possible.

There will be no spectators allowed at this competition. One coach or handler per lifter will be allowed on the day. Exceptions can be made for under 18s, those with disabilities, or vulnerable. Please contact the committee in order to arrange this.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone on the day who is displaying any symptoms of Covid or respiratory infection, regardless of whether a negative lateral flow test is presented.

Thanks for your co-operation, we look forward to welcoming you and putting on a great competition
