London Paralympics: PowerliftingThe London 2012 Paralympics Powerlifting programme takes place at the ExCeL exhibition centre in the River Zone from Thursday 30 August to Wednesday 5 September. Essentially a bench-press competition, Paralympic Powerlifting, having made its debut in the Tokyo 1964 Games, is one of the world's fastest-growing sports with athletes from more than 100 countries involved in international competition. The athletes have to meet a minimum eligibility criteria based on their impairment, and are then grouped by bodyweight for competition so that athletes with different impairments can compete for the same medals. There are 10 different weight categories for both men and women, who made their debut in the sport at Sydney 2000.
