This is a huge move by the USAPL. A federation that's been long known to have ambitions to take over the world of powerlifting, this move may just very well do that. For so many lifters it's not about the federation. It's about what federation allows them to lift the way they want to. For lifters who have been wanting to have a drug free environment and to be able to lift in wraps without having to labeled as equipped, this is big news. The USAPL has also created 3 more divisions. Catering to athletes with special conditions, and trans and or non-binary athletes.
