Powerlifting: Every athlete aims in lifting more weights than the opponent using specific moves. In Special Olympics Powerlifting is much more than deadlift, squat or bench press. It is effort, persistence and loyalty. Training, determination and attitude, are the key facts that define the balance between a successful or a failed attempt. The barbell, despite testing the physical strength, is also highlighting the athlete’s inner wish to improve, “not to make compromises."


Coach: Tyler Miller; First Practice: TBD

Practice is held three times a week:  Location: Force Barbell Sports Performance, 14036 Britton Park Rd, Fishers, IN 46038;
