The European Powerlifting Federation and France Powerlifting Federation welcome you to the European University Cup Classic Powerlifting, Albi, France, 16th to 18th March 2023.  123 student athletes will be competing with 64 males and 59 females present from many European nations.

Albi is a town on the Tarn River in southern France, northeast of Toulouse. Albi is best known for its beautiful 13th-century, red-brick Sainte-Cécile Cathedral, the amazing 1,000 year old bridge and the Fashion and Toulouse Lautrec museums.

The town was built around the original cathedral and this historic heart of the city covers 63 hectares with large interior frescoes such as the dramatic “Last Judgment.”

Next to the cathedral stands the similarly massive and fortified Bishop's palace, part of which now houses the magnificent Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - Salon rue des Moulins. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, 1864-1901, was the great post-impressionist iconographer of Parisian life in the late nineteenth century; he was a native of Albi, and the museum hosts the largest collection of his work, along with a representative collection of late 19th century French art.
