Due to a weak response, SWF has had to make the decision to reschedule the powerlifting competition series that was planned for Apr-June 2012.
We will instead organise a one-day powerlifting competition (all 3 disciplines) at a date (July) and venue to be confirmed by May 2012.
We will be keeping all registrations-to-date on file as pre-registrations as registrations fees for one or all catergories will remain the same. Those who wish to claim a refund of their registration are to contact us at email@example.com.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconveniences caused.
The Singapore Weightlifting Federation (SWF) is establishing an annual series of powerlifting competitions with the objective of developing the sport while providing enthusiasts and competitors a viable platform to challenge themselves and each other.
Through this series of competitions, SWF will consolidate a database of lifters that could be eligible to participate in overseas competition. It serves as a means for all immediate parties to ensure that those competing overseas have the appropriate techniques and knowledge to do so.
The inaugural 2012 Championship Series comprises of 3 rounds, 1 for each discipline – Bench Press, Squat and Deadlift – and 1 Grand Championship. While a competitor may compete in a minimum of 1 discipline, to qualify for the Grand Championship (incorporated into the Singapore National Weightlifting Open), he/she must have participated in all 3 disciplines for a cumulative total. Only the Top 6 lifters (based on cumulative total) from each weight category will be invited to participate in the Grand Championship. Should an invited competitor decline his slot, it will then be offered to the next better competitor
|Round 1 – Squat||
7th Apr 2012
|SWF Training Centre|
|Round 2 – Bench Press||
5th May 2012
|SWF Training Centre|
|Round 3 – Deadlift||

|SWF Training Centre|
|Grand Championship (all 3 disciplines)||
Prizes will be awarded to the Top 3 finishers for each discipline of each weight category, except for the Grand Championship where only the Top 3 finishers based on cumulative total of the 3 disciplines for each weight category will be awarded prizes.
SWF will also maintain a register of National records for each of the disciplines, which will be categorized by weight category, gender and age group (Jr and Sr).
