The International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) World Classic Opening Championship is one of the most prestigious powerlifting competitions in the world. Held annually, this championship brings together the best powerlifters from around the globe to compete for the title of world champion. This year it was held in the beautiful mediterranean country of Malta.

Why is there a competition for this?

Not only is the IPF World Classic Opening Championship a showcase of incredible strength and athleticism, but it's also a celebration of the powerlifting community. The atmosphere is electric, with lifters and fans alike cheering each other on and supporting one another throughout the competition. The championship is not only a platform for elite athletes to showcase their strength, but it's also an opportunity for powerlifting to gain more recognition as a legitimate sport. As more and more people become interested in strength sports, competitions like the IPF World Classic Opening Championship provide a platform for lifters to showcase their skills and inspire others to get involved in the sport.

How do you win?

The competition is divided into different weight classes for both men and women, with each lifter given three attempts to lift as much weight as possible in each of the three lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. The lifter with the highest total weight lifted across all three lifts is declared the winner of their weight class.

Who won?

Returning this year and defending his number 1 position, our long-time client Delaney Wallace who managed an unbelievable total of 815kg at a bodyweight of 82.80kg. There are 7 weight classes for men and women so that makes Delaney 1 of only 14 winners of the entire competition and the only man in his weight class to take the title! It’s such a privilege for our physical therapists to be able to serve such an accomplished athlete and to have been a small part of his journey to becoming the world champion! Here’s what Delaney has to say about our clinic:

“One of the best experiences I’ve had with a PT. Everything was handled professionally, quickly, and I felt like a priority! Sent 5 of my friends there already and they love it here too!”
