The USPA 2017 Drug Tested National Championships was a very successful meet and we hope all who participated enjoyed it as much as we did!

This was the second USPA Drug Tested National Championships and there were a lot of new world and national records set! The first USPA Drug Tested World Championships will be November 17-19, 2017.

A lot of hard work went into making the event successful. We would like to thank all who made it happen.

Thank you to Steve Denison and all our judges, Steve Goggins, Mike Tronske, Bobby Bowlin, Angela Bivens, Anthony Barnett Calhoun, Andrew Yerrakadu, Tricia Emrich, and Gary Emrich. Thank you for judging as well as helping teach those who were testing. Thank you to our new USPA State Referee’s Barbara Simone Lee, Ashley Newman, Cardell Oliver, Myreon Dunn, and Oakley Walraven. Congratulations on passing your exam and practical! We look forward to having you judge future events.


A very special thank you to our sponsors, Ken Anderson Anderson Powerlifting and Al McDonagh Without your support, both in sponsoring the event itself and in your ongoing contributions to Goggins Force, the meet would not have been such a success.

Thank you to our wonderful spotters and loaders Tony Walton, David Heard, Reginald Brazy Jiles, David Goodwin, Perry Ellis, Ezell Dawes III, Myreon Dunn, David Huckleby and Oakley Walraven. These guys worked hard loading the weights as well as keeping the lifters safe!

Our scorekeepers Alicia Neblett, Ashley Newman and Barbara Lee, thank you for making sure all attempts were entered correctly! As well as our announcers Alicia Neblett and Ron Robertson. Thank you for pumping up the lifters and guiding us all through the meet!

None of this would be possible without those who helped with set up, run the event as well as clean up!

A big thank you to everyone who came out and supported the event. Looking forward to seeing everyone again next year!
