The USA Powerlifting Palmetto Classic moved to Greenville, SC for 2017 and was a tremendous success! Congratulations to all of our lifters, judges and volunteers for a very smooth contest. With 80 lifters registered, we had some very impressive lifting across two platforms, one of which was exclusively comprised of our women lifters. The Palmetto Classic had lifters from NC, SC, GA, TN, VA and NY come together to compete at an incredibly high level. I am very proud of the comradery shown between our lifters, Several State records were broken and will be updated in the next few days (speaking for SC only).

Thank you very much to all of our spotters and loaders who came out to help keep our lifters safe. It is a tireless job that doesn't get the recognition that it deserves. There were several missed lifts that were caught by our spotters with no injuries reported. Once again, thank you.
I would also like to thank all of our sponsors who came out to support the Classic. Iron Rhino has been a fixture at our events over the last several years. Crandall provided t-shirts to all of our spotters and loaders as well as bags for our best lifters. Anchored Barbell helped to secure our wonderful venue at the Caine Halter YMCA and also provided a t-shirt for our best lifters. I would also like to thank Heather and BJ Faas for bringing Advocare to the Classic and providing our lifters the opportunity to experience and purchase supplements.
Our next contest is the South Carolina State Championship in December and the Battle on the Border will be coming around the corner in March, 2018. Please do not wait too long to get your entry forms submitted
if you would like to compete. They fill up quickly!
