World Para Powerlifting and Kit Us Out announced a partnership extension that will see athletes continue to benefit from lifting suit donations.

The partnership, existing since 2015, saw the international Para sport federation and charity organisation based in Great Britain donate uniforms to athletes from over 30 countries at events including the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games and the Nur-Sultan 2019 World Para Powerlifting Championships. 

Alex Mitchell, founder of Kit Us Out, said:

“Since the creation of Kit Us Out, our goal has always been to level the playing field in Para sport. Through providing athletes from developing nations uniforms, we’re enabling them to represent their country and perform at their very best.”

Jorge Moreno, Head of World Para Powerlifting, said:

“World Para Powerlifting is extremely proud to continue our relationship with Kit Us Out. Kit Us Out’s activities align exactly with our vision of enabling Para athletes to showcase their abilities and fulfil their full potential at all levels, and we are excited to continue to make a direct impact on their lives.”

World Para Powerlifting and Kit Us Out will continue collaborate and identify athletes in need at competitions on the road to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
