In Powerlifting, every athlete aims at lifting more weights than the opponent using specific moves. The sport emphasizes effort, persistence, and loyalty. Training, determination, and attitude are the key facts that define the balance between a successful or a failed attempt.

Participants will be divisioned by Special Olympics Minnesota based on ability level and age to give them a competitive experience.
