IPC Powerlifting BWL Performance Squads

Podium


The Podium squad is for those athletes with realistic Gold medal chances at the next Paralympic Games (i.e. for this Paralympic cycle the potential to win a gold medal in Rio 2016). 

As IPC Powerlifting has not been awarded any Podium Awards from UK Sport the maximum funding level is Podium-Potential D.


Podium-Potential


The Podium-Potential Squad is for those athletes with realistic chances of medalling  at the Rio 2016 Paralympics and progressing through to the Podium Squad.  Support is provided through the BWL WC Performance Programme and an athlete personal award.  Athletes need to show progression in order to remain in the squad.

Talent Squad


The existing talent squad supports young athletes who have experience of weightlifting through their schools and/or clubs who have the physical and psychological attributes which give them the potential to develop into elite weightlifters.  Athletes in this squad must demonstrate both commitment and progression and are normally expected to reach the Podium-Potential Squad Standard within 2 years.


Talent Confirmation Squad


The talent confirmation squad is for new lifters who have normally started lifting within the last 12 months and are felt to have the physical and psychological attributes to progress to eventually medal for Great Britain at a Paralympic Games.  These athletes are expected to progress quickly  into the Talent Squad
