365 Strong World Powerlifting Federation (365 SWPF) was created to unite the world through our sport and empower all competitors. We welcome all athletes, without discrimination, no matter what gear (or not) they choose to wear to compete or whether they want to be drug tested or not drug tested. (Athletes only compete against "like" competition.)
Our commitment to the athletes:
Specifically, 1) we promote all lifters, hosts and others that support 365 SWPF before, during and following all federation events, 2) all referees must pass our written and situational oral examinations and each is evaluated on actual performance prior to gaining approval as an International referee, 3) all lifters have access to the best equipment - mono-lifts, compeition benches and Rogue calibrated Kilo plates, 4) athletes have a choice to lift to their own walk-up lifting song or not, 5) we put a premium on lifter safety and ensure only experienced spotters are assigned to the platform, 6) we introduce all competitors to the crowd during our opening ceremonies to appreciate the work they've put in to prepare for competition, 7) our awards are awesome, 8) we believe in communication, so the lifters know what's going on at all times leading up to an event (lesson lifter anxiety), and finally 9) we believe in running events that are highly organized, high energy and transparent in nature.
The 2018, 2019 and 2020 World Powerlifting Games were huge successes!! Each year the event has attracted over 100 elite athletes from 12 nations and 32 states across the USA. Several all time world records fell and many more current international records were achieved as well! Special thanks to our meet hosts, athletes, officials, event staff and supporters for your participation and dedication!!
