Competed in my first IAWA event this last weekend (Welsh champs), and for any weightlifters or pwerlifters looking for something different (or strongmen/women) I would highly advise checking them out.
They concentrate on keeping alive the classic lifts (over 100 in the rule book), and each event is different (this last event was front squat, single hand clean & jerk, trapbar deadlift).
Great fun and a brilliant bunch of friendly athletes and organisers.
