2013 AAU World Powerlifting Championships

2013 AAU World Powerlifting Championships

This year the combined Full Power World Powerlifting Championship is combined with the International Push/Pull and single lift Championships in one exciting day of competition at the Holiday Inn, Rockland, Massachusetts. The meet hotel  and venue is 30 miles south of Boston’s Logan Airport and is located right off the highway. Plymouth & Brockton Bus Lines has a non-stop bus from the airport to the Park and Ride lot which is less than ½ mile from the hotel.

World and American full power and single lift records may be set at these meets. This is a one day meet and will be limited to the first 120 applicants. This Championship will be the last AAU Powerlifting meet for the Northeast region this year and promises to be our biggest meet of 2013.

2013  marks the first year of the AAU Powerlifting Hall of Fame Inductions. Ray Cross and his committee have been working diligently for almost two years to establish the Hall of Fame. 2013 is the inaugural year for the hall of fame. We expect at least 5 of this years nominees to be on hand at the competition for the brief induction ceremony.

The competitions are presented by BIG IRON Powerlifting and The Bay State Athletic Club. Meet entry forms and information are available on the AAU web site’s Powerlifting page. For further information contact Meet director Dave Mansfield at or or by phone at 781-294-4201 or contact meet directors Mark Sieminski and Eric Arnold at  781-544-3359.
