Para Powerlifting

Men’s Para Powerlifting made its Commonwealth Games debut in Manchester in 2002, joined by the women’s competition in Delhi in 2010. Participating in the bench press discipline, athletes must control the heavy barbell starting at an arm’s-length position down onto their chest, and then press the barbell back up until their arms are locked out. Team Wales had 3 powerlifters in the Gold Coast 2018; Sean Gaffney, Nathan Stephens and Nerys Pearce.
