IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – Cancellation of 2020 Australian National Championships

 
The APU board has decided to cancel 2020 APU AUSTRALIAN CLASSIC POWERLIFTING CHAMPIONSHIPS 
 
Date: 23/10/2020 – 25/10/2020
Location: Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium
 
In a very unprecedented time of history, APU believes it is in the best interest of our members, their families, our supporters and the public to cancel the planned APU Australian Classic and Equipped Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships which were scheduled to be held from 23 October 2020 to 25 October 2020.
 
The reason for cancellation is the following:
• To protect the health of all APU members, their families, and the general population.
• The QLD border closure to NSW, ACT and Vic will reduce participation by over 50%.
• Participation may be further affected with cases increasing in some other locations.
• Athletes may be hesitant to book accommodation and flights due to changes in the situation.
• Viability of the championships is unlikely and APU board has a responsibility to protect its interest. 
 
We hope that you all understand the important decision that the APU board had to make, and we encourage you all to stay safe, protect yourself and protect the people around you.
 
APU will make further announcements regarding other championships which include the possibility of National Club Championship Postal event. 
 
 
Yours in strength
Sean Muir and The APU Board
