For many years Dr Latch ran the Son Light Powerifting organization as a fun place to lift.. dedicated to to amateur lifters and to bring the sport to the local area. After Dr. Latch passed the SLP seemed all but done... Recently Rich and Christina McDowell purchased the SLP and have transformed in to an official federation with full power raw and gear all standard weight classes and divisions. 3 certified judge as well as calibrated plates in pounds, Singlets required will be required and all standard rules of lifting and our ranking rules apply! Congratulations to Rich and Christina McDowell and may the organization be a commendable and reputable one!
