Live stream announced for Para Powerlifting World Cup

Live stream announced for Para Powerlifting World Cup

With just one month to go until the world’s finest para powerlifters return to Manchester, British Weight Lifting is delighted to announce that every session of the event will be live streamed on the British Weight Lifting Facebook page.

Due to current restrictions and to protect the health and safety of everyone involved, the event is taking place behind closed doors, but the live stream means fans will be able to cheer on the Great Britain team from home as they compete for crucial ranking places ahead of the rescheduled Tokyo Paralympic Games.

Marking the start of the one-month countdown, organisers have also today revealed the competition schedule for the event, which is taking place at Wythenshawe Forum from Thursday 25 - Sunday 28 March.
