We trust that this announcement finds you and your family and friends safe and doing as well as can be expected under the present worldwide threat of COVID-19. Since most of you have not had or will not have access to your training facility now and the near future the 2020 World Powerlifting Games and World Bench Face-Off, slated for May 2-3, 2020, will be postponed. Though we must stay flexible and sensitive to what’s outside of our control, we announce that the event has been moved to October 17-18, 2020 to allow pandemic restrictions to be minimized over time, provide athletes with an adequate time period to train and prepare once gyms are reopened and international lifters to re-apply for their visa. We will continue to post federation news updates at https://www.365strong.org/blog to keep you informed with the latest information. Currently, we request that you continue to follow the decisions of your government as this is in the best interest for all of us, so we all may continue with our normal lives and competing in a sport we love. May God’s Blessing be with each you, stay healthy and safe!! Respectfully, Bill Clary
