We can’t believe the 2017 US Open Powerlifting Meet has already come and gone. We had no doubt this would be the most successful meet in history, the meet that would change so many lives.
Our goal since day one of partnership is to build on our passion of PRO POWERLIFTING with one VISION, to create a world where Lifters can compete for large cash prizes. Our MISSION is to ’Support the Sport' and the community of Powerlifting. We are determined to join the hard working efforts of Emad Nayef and Markos Markopoulos with ProRaw Powerlifting and Big Dogs.
The 2017 US Open Powerlifting Meet exceeded all of our expectations. CONGRATULATIONS to our $40,000 winners Marianna Gasparyan (Kazakhstan), Ben Pollack (USA) and Yury Belkin (Russia). Thank you to all our athletes who flew in from around the world, their fans, family, friends and everyone who joined us in San Diego. Our audience energy was insane! We had many guest appearances including Ed Coan, Steve Goggins, Mike O'Hearn and their families coaching and supporting all the lifters. A huge highlight of the weekend, in true manner of ‘Supporting the Sport’, is when C.T. Fletcher refused the check we handed him and thanked us for what are doing for Powerlifting. That really hit us in the feels.

Brad Madvig recovery and relief

Brad Madvig is a 42 year old married man from Maple Grove, Minnesota. In September of 2015, Brad began experiencing vision problems and this led to a disgnosis of Lhermitte-Duclos disease, which is a very rare benign brain tumor. Since then , he has been constantly battling excessive cerebrospinal fluid on the brain (hydrocephalus), which has resulted in increased intercrainial pressure that has damages his optic nerves and diminished his vision to the point that he has not been able to work or drive since last September. He underwent a number of painful spinal taps to help relieve the pressure, but these weren't a long-term solution.
