Western European Equipped & Classic PL Championships 2022, 9th to 11th September 2022, Aulnat, France

The European Powerlifting Federation and France Powerlifting Federation welcome you to the Western European Equipped and Classic Powerlifting Championships,  Aulnat, France,   9th to 11th September, 2022.

142 athletes from France, Netherlands, Belgium, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Norway, Austria, Ireland, Luxembourg, Great Britain and Switzerland will be competing for the coveted medals.

Aulnat is a commune in the Puy-de-Dôme department of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes in central France.   Puy-de-Dome is found just west of Clermont-Ferrand, and towards the north of the Chaine-des-Puys chain of volcanoes in the Parc des Volcans.

An extraordinary site, Puy-de-Dome is an extinct volcano that has been listed as one of the 'Grand Sites of France'. The Puy-de-Dome rises to 1464 metres above sea level, significantly higher than the other peaks in the immediate area, and therefore has views in all directions across mountains and volcanoes for as far as the eye can see. Whichever way you reach the top of the Puy-de-Dome, there is then a footpath that follows around the top of the hill so you can enjoy the views in all directions. Close to the summit is an unexpected site, the remains of a Roman Temple called the 'Temple of Mercury'. There are also various visitor facilities such as a cafe at the top of the Puy-de-Dome.

The natural environment is the main highlight in the Parc des Volcans and around Puy-de-Dome but you still have the opportunity to visit various towns and villages. In particular there is a very distinctive style of religious architecture as you can see in the church and basilica of Clermont-Ferand and the Cathédrale Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption, in sombre black lava stone, dominates the historic centre
