USA Powerlifting recently announced the launch of the 2020 USA Powerlifting Hometown Showdown, a national powerlifting competition that will be administered on a local level.
USAPL cancelled all Youth, Open, Bench and Raw Nationals earlier this year due to safety concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. The Hometown Showdown is USAPL’s creative way of continuing safe and healthy competition for powerlifters nationwide.
The rules for the competition are simple. If you enter and compete at any USAPL local event, you are automatically entered into the Hometown Showdown. Powerlifters will be ranked and entered into a USAPL live leaderboard that will keep competitors up to date on the current standings.
