The fourth edition of the Online World Cup Series took place on Monday (31 August) to mark the one-year-to go celebrations to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

As in previous events, athletes had the opportunity to submit up to four videos of their lifts competing from home or their local gym.

The difference this time was that the Technical Officials judged the attempts during a live show broadcast on World Para Powerlifting Facebook page with almost 18,000 views.

Dates for the fifth and final Online World Cup Series are to be confirmed.
