It started at the SportAccord Convention 2018 in Bangkok that the Thai Powerlifting showcased their sport to the Thai public with the full support of the International Powerlifting Federation, AIMS and United Through Sports initiative. From then on, international championships have been organised under the energetic management of Mr John Coyle and close cooperation with IPF and AIMS. History is made as for the first time, Thai Powerlifting team will travel to Sweden and the proud national team and Mr John Coyle invited Mr Robert Keller, IPF Secretary-General and AIMS council member and the AIMS President, Mr Stephan Fox, to meet the athletes. Mr Keller showed his pride thanking Mr Coyle for all his devotion and the AIMS President congratulated the athletes on their achievements and wished them the time of their lives for their first world championships.
