The Singapore Weightlifting Federation (SWF) is establishing an annual series of powerlifting competitions with the objective of developing the sport while providing enthusiasts and competitors a viable platform to challenge themselves and each other.
Through this series of competitions, SWF will consolidate a database of lifters that could be eligible to participate in overseas competition. It serves as a means for all immediate parties to ensure that those competing overseas have the appropriate techniques and knowledge to do so.
The inaugural 2012 Championship Series comprises of 3 rounds, 1 for each discipline – Bench Press, Squat and Deadlift – and 1 Grand Championship. While a competitor may compete in a minimum of 1 discipline, to qualify for the Grand Championship (incorporated into the Singapore National Weightlifting Open), he/she must have participated in all 3 disciplines for a cumulative total. Only the Top 6 lifters (based on cumulative total) from each weight category will be invited to participate in the Grand Championship. Should an invited competitor decline his slot, it will then be offered to the next better competitor
