Good of federations president to down play the achievements of Murdoch by saying he wouldn't even make top 10 in some feds. Roll-Eyes

Good to see powerlifting making the news and with a physique like that it might just move people away from the opinion that PLing is generally made up of more rotund individuals.

Great physique, great bench, wrong fed.

And do my eyes deceive me, or is there rubber and metal on the same bar in that picture??

Very much so, especially when he doesn't seem to know the rules of the FED he is president of!

4. The BDFPA will consider applications for membership from former drug
users who have ceased the use of all drugs for a minimum of ten years
and provided details of their test failure. In the first instance ex-drug
users may compete in BDFPA competitions as guests only, with a proviso
that they be classified as associate members without voting rights, for a
trial period of one year.

Very strange. I presume he's having a pop at other Feds' testing regimes?! Makes no sense otherwise.

No it isn't. He's clearly making reference to the improvement's in performance lifters in other fed's are getting from PED's

Clearly to us perhaps, not bbc.co.uk's general readership, to whom I suspect it would have appeared to be a strange comment to make.

Well its nice bit of publicity for the sport and fed involved.

That comment reg placing in other feds was either taken out of context or he should have said exactly what he meant.
