MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM)- The World Single-Event Drug-Free Powerlifting Championships are underway at the Frauenthal Center in Muskegon.
Lifters from 14-countries are competing in the squat, bench, and dead lift. Event promoters says because each lifter competes in only one event, several new world records are likely to be set. The competition includes men and women and several different weight-classes.
Muskegon lifter Ron Madison says lifters compete without any help from drugs. "We are tested for any forms of steroids and growth hormones. We can not even have accelerated levels of certain caffeine. It's strict, just like the Olympics."
The Bench Press is Saturday starting at 9 a.m. and continues Sunday with the squat at 10 a.m.
The event is free for spectators.
