PROVINCIALS UPDATE

After numerous discussions and deliberation, the SPA Executive has decided the Saskatchewan Powerlifting Provincial Championships will not be held in the 2020 calendar year out of the best interests of its members. The Executive is working hard to develop a comprehensive return to a safe level of play plan for future meets to ensure the health and well-being of everyone involved.⁣

As reminder, recommendations and requirements of the Saskatchewan Government COVID 19 regulations do not permit Saskatchewan athletes to participate in sporting competition outside of the province. We will aim to update our membership if this changes: https://www.saskatchewan.ca/government/health-care-administration-and-provider-resources/treatment-procedures-and-guidelines/emerging-public-health-issues/2019-novel-coronavirus/re-open-saskatchewan-plan/guidelines/outdoor-sports-and-activities-guidelines⁣

Dan Suberlak Inducted into the Hall of Fame

Dan has competed in powerlifting for many years in the province, country and the world. In 2004, Dan benched a huge 287.5kg at Bench Worlds, placing fifth and setting the provincial and national record. The provincial record would stand until the records were retired with the new weight classes in 2011. Dan competed at CPU nationals many times over the years and earned many medals, with a good collection of golds in bench only. He is and was an excellent advocate for the sport.

Congratulations Dan!
