The meet is part of a truly unique event that is being put on by USA Powerlifting, and we are proud to be a part of it.
Each participating state will run a WOMEN ONLY event on the same date, May 4. Scoring will be done via LiftingCast. This will allow all competitors to compete against women all over the United States at the same time without being in the same place. These combined results will be entered into our lifting database as "United Ladies of Iron (WA-2019-01)" to form, possibly, the largest women's only powerlifting event!
Each lifter will also compete against the lifters at their local event. Awards and placings will be given to those on location as well as the nation wide placings.
Each local event will award the top 3 places in each weight class and age division. In addition, the top 3 in each weight class and age division will be awarded to the winners of United Ladies of Iron.
