It is the first time that the IPF family will have a World Championship on the beautiful Island of Malta.

The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) lead by Meet Director Mr. Mauro Gasan, and the President of Malta Powerlifting Association, Matthew Elphick, are doing a great job in preparing an outstanding and a most memorable event for everyone.

The LOC is providing highest standards in terms of accommodation, training and warm up equipment, as well as an excellent lifting platform, which shall give the athletes the very best conditions to perform at the very highest level!
