The 2014 IPC Powerlifting World Championships was a competition for male and female athletes with a disability. With 360 competitors from over 60 countries, the event surpassed the number of entrants of the 2012 Summer Paralympics of London. It was held in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and ran from 5 to 11 April. The event was held in the Dubai Club for the Disabled.

Competition[edit]

The 2014 IPC Powerlifting World Championships was the sixth championship in its series, and the second hosted by Dubai. Held at the Dubai Club for the Disabled, the competition was attended by 360 athletes representing 60 countries, surpassing the number of entrants for the 2012 Summer Paralympics held in London.[1][2] Twenty lifting events were contested, with ten categories for both female and male competitors. Medals were given for first, second and third place.

Five countries dominated the results: Nigeria, Egypt, China, Iran and Russia. These five countries took home 41 of the total 60 medals, including 14 golds. Although Egypt led the medal table from day three, Nigeria finished atop the table with five golds after Precious Orji won the final women's event, the over 86kg category. Egypt won the most medals at the competition, with a total of 12, followed by Russia with 9.[3]

Over the 20 events, 15 world records were equaled or surpassed.[4] Some events saw world records broken multiple times, including both heaviest categories. Precious Orji broke her own world record three times to eventually lift 151kg, while in the men's event Siamand Rahman of Iran broke his own world record three times lifting 285.5kg.[5] In the lower weights Egypt's Sherif Othman, in the -54kg category, surpassed the old world record of 181kg four times, finishing with a lift of 205kg.[6]
