From 27th February, a total number of 194 athletes from 33 countries will be competing in the Fazza World Para Powerlifting World Cup Dubai 2017, which will serve as a qualifier for the World Powerlifting Championship to be held in Mexico in September this year.

The 8th Fazza World Para Powerlifting World Cup Dubai 2017 will be held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council (DSC). It is being organised and supervised by the Dubai Club for the Disabled with the support of their strategic partners Dubai Sports Council, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the General Authority for Youth and Sports Welfare (GAYSW), and the UAE Paralympic Committee.

Jon Amos, Chairman of the IPC Powerlifting Committee, said Fazza World Para Powerlifting World Cup Dubai 2017, is one of only two qualifying events before the World Para Powerlifting Championships.

"The fact that we have got an agreement to have five competitions in Dubai is a big thing. We have not done that with any other country yet. If we didn't believe that this is one of our key competitions during the qualification period, then we would not have had an agreement," said Amos thanking the Dubai Club for the Disabled and other stakeholders in the Fazza World Para Powerlifting World Cup Dubai 2017. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
