It was announced yesterday that the conglomerate will team up with the Guyana Amateur Powerlifting Federation (GAPF) for the deadlift competition and fundraising Bar-B-Q scheduled to be staged on June 4 at the St Stanislaus College Auditorium.
According to Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the federation and national lifter, Osmond ‘Billy’ Mack, Ansa McAL, will be hydrating the athletes and patrons with water and sports drinks and will also provide other beverages for elbow bending. On competition day, the top three athletes according to wilks points will be handsomely rewarded for their efforts after competition gets underway at 13:00hrs.
Bar-B-Q costs $1000 while athlete registration is listed at $2500 for the activity which is geared towards blanketing the cost for the national athletes to attend the Annual International Powerlifting Federation (IPF)/ North American Powerlifting Federation (NAPF) and Caribbean Championships set for July 5-8 in Orlando, Florida.Persons without Bar-B-Q tickets will be required to pay an admission fee of $500.
