Welcome to the official website of the IPF affiliated Commonwealth Powerlifting Federation.

Our goal is to develop and promote high-standard and enjoyable drug-free powerlifting competition at the Commonwealth International level.

From the CPF President

Dear Commonwealth Powerlifting Colleagues,

On behalf of the Commonwealth Powerlifting Federation may I wish you the Complements of the Season and a very Happy and Successful Powerlifting New Year. Our 2015 championships in Vancouver were very successful with a record turnout of countries and lifters and we are now look forward to even bigger and better things in South Africa 2017. 4 In the meantime, all nations are reminded that Commonwealth records can only be claimed if you are affiliated for the next two year period. Invoices for this will be sent out as soon as possible in January.

Best wishes,
Richard Parker, President

A Sad Passing
We were deeply saddened a few days ago to learn of the passing of Aitken Fruen, Samoan Powerlifting Federation President. Aitken was a very well respected member of the CPF and IPF community, a dedicated and selfless Coach and a true gentleman.

Our thoughts and condolences to his family and friends everywhere.
