Team USA won the 2005 WPC Worlds held in Helsinki Finland. Apparently, the Americans fielded a team with fewer lifters than its main competition but was still able to fend off threats from the Russians and Fins among other countries.
Go Metal has all the results by division.

Jim Wendler has created a list of his favorites over at EliteFTS. You might want to check it out for a good laugh as well as some good recommendations.
Jim votes the APF Outlaws the best forum. The Arnold Classic is given the nod as best powerlifing meet. And the best deadlift hitch... Diesel Wiesel of Internet posting fame.
bullshit both sqts are high
Oleksandr Kutcher totalled 2,167 in the 165 pound weight class to set a new world record at the WPO Semis in Finland. The 2,167 total would have been a world record for the 181 pound weight class as well. Kutcher hit an 849 pound squat, 536 pound bench and a 783 pound deadlift. The squat and deadlift are also 165 world records.
Kutcher broke his own world record total of 2,121 which he had just set the week prior at the WPO Semis in Chicago.
He's on one heck of a roll, to say the least.
The Sunday lifting had very, very, lax judging. Don't put words in my mouth. IPF depth? No way.
You've heard of Westside Barbell and the Metal Militia coalition. How about Big Iron Gym? Big Iron Gym is located in Omaha, Nebraska. It's home to female powerlifter extraordinaire, Becca Swanson and young powerlifter Nick Hatch. It's also home to about 50 other lifters and coach Rick Hussey. Check out the discussion about the gym over at the APF Outlaws board.
