WORLD PARA POWERLIFTING ONLINE WORLD CUP SERIES

The Online World Cup Series, presented by BIGSER was launched by World Para Powerlifting in April to give athletes an opportunity to remain focused and motivated during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first season of the Online World Cup Series will have five stages. Athletes earn ranking points for taking part in each edition and the overall winner will receive a World Para Powerlifting Eleiko bar.

The opening Series was held from the end of April to the beginning of May. Nur-Sultan 2019 World Championships medallists Vera Muratova of Russia and Fabio Torres of Colombia were the winners in the women’s and men’s categories, respectively.

The Online World Cup Series also includes a virtual competition for World Para Powerlifting experts and fans.

At each stage, four team captains select two female and two male athletes for their teams trying to predict the results.

Paralympic champions Amalia Perez (Team Blue) and Sherif Osman (Team Red), Italian national team coach Alessandro Boraschi (Team Yellow) and Head of Competition Pedro Meloni (Team Green) are the four captains.
