From promoter Al Myers:
After the success of last year’s inaugural OTSM World Postal, John Mahon and I have decided to continue with the promotion again this year. This years competition dates are July 20th-21st.
Now for a little “background” on this postal competition. It is much different than the other postal meets we have.
- It will be held over a weekend only and all lifts must happen at this time
- It will always be held at only one venue per participating country
- Each country will have a promoter for the event, and provide the venue
The reason for these added stipulations is to give more credibility to the event. Since all lifts will be done at a set venue at the same time, with the same set of officially recognized officials there is no question to the validity of this World Championship. Also, I like the idea of everyone world wide doing the lifts at the same time, almost like a meet we are all at together. There are different lifts chosen this year to give a new challenge to everybody.

**Southern Shield – Change of date**
Please note: The Southern Shield Competition will now be Sunday 18th August (not 26th May). The lifts remain the same: 2 Dumbbells Clean & Press, Bent Arm Pullover and the Trap Bar Deadlift.
Apologies for the change, it should spread the events out a bit and allow more lifters to take part, especially with the British All-Round coming soon.
