    lols i remember seeing the new overlordess at the juniors/masters a few yrs ago,shes very enthusiastic about the sport.good looking lady in fact i think.no idea about her comp history as a competitor.her commentary on the worlds i would class as excitable.seems like a dynamic lady.She ll get the numbers.a lot of people seem to dislike her based on her commentary but id rather have her than some monotone motherfucker.feel sorry for Robert as he seemed to me to put his lifters first.im neutral and due to the fact im a minnow in the sport it prolly means my opinion is f all.

    just to add that i sincerely hope NZPF doesnt follow Wilks down the same road.Unfortunately the vote at the IPF congress was unanimous.highly freakin unfair but unanimous.I still have international aspirations and am extremely selfish by nature when it comes to goals,i would be upset if NZ gets the shaft too.This is most likely my last yr of competing until i turn 50 and i want to go to Nauru at the end of it.Rob should step aside into another capacity.Fracturing the sport will lead to no good,have to find some way to work together peacefully.

    im reading that most lifters dont care about representing internationally and just want to lift with their mates.this most certainly wasnt the case with me.as soon as i realised i could match it with the m1s who represented aussie at the commonwealths/oceanias in 2013 based on the numbers they put up thats all i could think about.I daresay guys who are lifting well into their late 30s would want to have that pathway.

    So, no official announcement yet. Just a Reddit thread with rumours and guesses. Nothing on the web site. Nothing on the Farcebook page. So, nothing official at all.

    Is the "no involvement in other feds" a PA thing? I thought that was an IPF thing. Same with associating with druggies, such as Ed Coen.

    great news, but it will take a while and certain behaviour to become IPF recognised.
    How dare I offer an opinion, because vonfram88 knows I did not do maths.

    I am only interested if and when it is recognised by the ipf.

    Oh boy! So, we have a time frame. My offer to pay for your first comp entry fee stands.

    Yes, -35 today with -45 wind chill. Lucky I have a heater in my garage gym.

    Switching is a possibility once I get residency sorted. Without it, all I can do is compete as a guest, so no record setting or team placement until then.

    Yes, I could do NZ but then I would have to go live there for a while in order to do a couple of comps to qualify, which is not in my schedule. I do miss real kumeras though.

    At this stage PA is forging ahead, just not affiliated. Its a real crime that all of the athletes are being punished for a spat between two individuals. It will take a lot to switch over so I suspect that worlds is out for Oz in 2018. Maybe someone will have some trace of empathy and allow athletes to compete as independents, as they can do in the Olympics.
