World Powerlifting Congress (WPC)

46 Countries - 3 Lifts - 1 Goal

A Lifter's Organisation


Established by Ernie Frantz in 1986. The World Powerlifting Congress consists of 46 countries worldwide that participate in an annual World Championships. We provide competitive and outstanding Powerlifting meets, and are successfully known as “a lifter’s organization”. We pride ourselves on the fact that the vast majority of our officials are active lifters who appreciate fair and consistent judging. The WPC supports the interest of the lifter with constant review of the rules.
