Hello. I'm Dmitry Kasatov, RAW benchpresser (best RAW bench press 280 kg (630 lb) in 125 kg weight category) and the organizer of plenty powerlifting competitions in Russia. 19 dec 2010 I organize the tournament WORLDLIFTING specially to invite the strongest athletes in RAW powerlifting to measure strength on one platform. This is the best way to find out the strongest man. I do count on American athletes, and I hope they will support me in this idea. In WORLDLIFTING is $14000 cash prize
The strongest Russian powerlifting athlete, Andrey Malanichev is preparing to take part in WORLDLIFTING. You may watch all the applications on the web-site of our tournament http://worldlifting.com/. As well, Laszlo Mezaros considers his participation. I would remind you that he is a prize winner of EUROLIFTING 2010 in May.
Besides, Andrey Kisel and other strong athletes from the Ukraine are planning to participate.
Look at the battle of giants Holger Kurttroff & Sergey Mozeron EUROLIFTING: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XORMCVqxdiQ
It's enormous strength and fascinating clash!
But of course, WORLDLIFTING can't be called so without athletes from the United States! If you really want to measure strength we look forward to seeing you!
The strongest russians athletes want the fight with strongest american athletes! Without any federations and equipment. Only RAW power...

Dmitry,

We have a couple of very good raw lifters here. One, Eric Lilliebridge has over a 2,000 lbs raw total in the 275 lbs weight class at a very young age. You can read more about him here:http://atlargenutrition.com/eric_lilliebridge.php

Scott Yard is another impressive raw lifter and posts here regularly.

Finally, Stan Efferding is probably one of the best raw lifters on the planet right now.

I am curious, do you have funds to help a select few athletes travel to your meets?

Finally, we have big Rob Wilkerson who has a raw bench on par with yours and has squatted 950 lbs raw in a meet.

Don't forget about Ryan Celli! I looked on the site, and it's by formula I believe, so the lighter guys have a chance too.

Yes, I have. If anybody from cool american RAW lifters ir bench pressers want fights in WORLDLIFTING than I can pay for his travel from USA to Moscow.

Wow, my ego hurts a bit, however, I have a 605 raw bench in competition. I think competing in Russia would be very cool. It's something I'd love to do one day, but getting time off during the school year can be very difficult for a teacher. It sounds like it's going to be incredible competition.

Kasat,

Get out there to Russia! I would love to go there!

Not just Vinnie overlooked, but Robert Wilkerson. About 630ish raw bench and the biggest raw squat of all time at 975 post his journal here (Kingkong 51).

Meaning no disrespect to you as I've met many Russian lifters who I respect and admire, but will the judges all be Russian? I've competed in a few WPC World events and have seen several Russian judges really crucify lifters from particular countries. The U.S. being one. Don't get me wrong, I've seen other countries judges and ours in the past do the same. It should never happen, but unfortunately it does. So, will there be both eastern and western judges at the meet as there should be at an international meet to counter balance any bias; either conscious or unconscious? Ideally no 2 judges from the same country at the same time on the platform like happened at WPC Worlds on one of the days in 2008 in Florida. I'm sure assurances of that would make a trip to Russia much for attractive. I'd love to see it happen under those conditions.

Hello. I understand you. Really, there are new trend in russians WPC. The Judging in russians WPC 2003-2007 was very loyal for sportsmens. But IPF is more influential in Russia than WPC. And IPF sportsmens laughing at WPC rules. Than president of russians WPC decided to tighten the Judging. And russians WPC Judges at international competitions looks like the executioneres. :)
As to my competitions - I myself an athlete and really understand all significance of smooth Judging. If any USA judges will be in WORLDLIFTING - welcome! If there will be not - it'sno problem. I have good 3 Judges, who are well understand that if their work is not satisfactory, then the foreign athletes do not come to us next time. And in EUROLIFTING they forgiving foreign athletes mistakes, but to the Russian athletes were a little tougher. We are quite adequate people. ;) And my job is to make the most intense struggle on the WORLDLIFTING. And I'm very intresting in foreign athletes and their excellent results for it.
Do you understand my poor English?

Yes. That's a very good response. I don't think any of our top lifters need forgiving judging or want it. Just fair and even across the board. I wouldn't want to know that a Russian lifter was being judged any tighter than me or vice versa. As long as every lifter is judged the same, that's all any lifter should expect. Thanks for your response. Our best vs. Russia's, as well as the rest of the world's best; would surely be a great event. I'm just a pretty good old master's lifter, but I'd love to see how this matchup of the best of the best would pan out. Good luck with the event!

Some features of my competition are a very precise schedule, quality equipment for a workout and adequate referees.
May be loyal referees, but not to the point of absurdity.
