The USAPL ATL Winter Smash is this weekend!
This weekend at the inaugural USA Powerlifting Atlanta Winter Smash (#ATLwintersmash, #GA-2017-10), 60 powerlifters will take the platform to attempt new personal bests in the squat, bench press and deadlift.
The field of athletes is split evenly between men & women and includes lifters ages 10 to 58, from five different states. One third of the competitors will be competing for the first time in a special Novice division.
Family & friends, those lifters would love to hear you cheering for them! Admission is $10. All door proceeds will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Please join us Saturday and help us reach our goal of donating $2,000 to the SPLC.
USA Powerlifting is a mostly volunteer-run organization. Obviously the meets couldn’t happen without brave athletes willing to challenge themselves. But without our generous squad of volunteers, the show would certainly not go on. Thank you in advance to the 35 kind souls who are donating their Saturday to this event. Breakfast, lunch, a t-shirt and a hug is but a small token of my gratitude. Thanks for all you do to support the strength community.
Our meet logo was designed by local artist Jazmin Chacon.
Meet t-shirts were printed by The T-Shirt Lady.
Volunteer lunches are served by Zoe’s Kitchen.
Meet photography is provided by Wingfoot Photos.
Our top lifters will receive medals from Awards USA, as well as products from Citadel Nutrition and NOW Foods.
Thanks to everyone for your support. Let’s have lots of fun, PRs & white lights this weekend!
