About GPC Australia

About GPC Australia

GPC Australia is Australia's newest powerlifting organisation. We are the affiliate of the Global Powerlifting Committee, and will provide a wide range of events around Australia. 

GPC Australia offers both RAW and EQUIPPED powerlifting, as well as bench press and deadlift only events.

One of the main differences between GPC Australia and any other Australian federation is that RAW will include knee coverings (knee sleeves and knee wraps - 2.5m maximum) as well as elbow coverings on the squat and deadlift - but NOT on the bench press. Belts and wrist wraps are also allowed. 

For any other infomation you need, feel free to contact any of our committee, including your state representative.
