EQUIPPED RECORDS as of 21st June 2014
In compliance with WPC rules, there are now single ply and multi ply records. For full details please refer to Latest News announcement from 21st June 2014.
The existing equipped records will be divided into single ply and multi ply based on the following:
All equipped records set prior to 31 December 2002 will be classified as single ply.
All equipped records set from 1 January 2003 to 13 June 2014 will have to be classified as multi ply. This is because no equipped checks were undertaken during this time.
HOWEVER – all lifters who set equipped records from 1 January 2003 to 13 June 2014 who would like to come forward and claim their lifts were done in single ply may do so. The committee are putting this offer forward in good faith and in the best interests of the lifters affected by this new ruling. This will be based on an honour system and the understanding that all members of CAPO acknowledge the importance of the integrity of our records and our history.
From 14 June 2014 all equipped lifters need to specify whether they will be lifting in single ply or multi ply gear. Single ply lifters will have compulsory full gear checks at weigh in. Failure to comply with single ply rules or present your equipment automatically places the lifter in the multi ply division.
CAPO single ply equipment regulations: Squat suits and deadlift suits will consist of single ply polyester not to extend beyond 4” from the top groin. Bench shirts will consist of single ply polyester and must be closed back. Velcro is not permitted on the bench shirt, squat suit or deadlift suit. Wrist wraps, knee wraps and belt are allowed.
Equipped lifters will still compete as one division unless otherwise specified (as per the WPC rule book).
