USAPL and the 2015 Arnold

Good morning, Everyone,
I had a brief discussion with Mr. Jim Lorimar of the Arnold Sports Festival this morning. USA Powerlifting events are much appreciated for continuing quality and improvements each year. As a result, USAPL will continue in the Arnold next year with events that will be the same or similar to those this year. Any changes format will be determined in next three months but entry criteria will be published within 30 days. I would point out, again, selection for U.S lifters will be based on performance at the corresponding National Championship.

Thanks again to our generous sponsors, without whom an event of this scope could not be hosted, and especially to the athletes whose unbelievable performances set new standards and continue to bring attention to powerlifting across the world.

President, USA Powerlifting
