                           RELEASE FROM LIABILITY and CONSENT TO DRUG TEST:

NOTE: (Please read this release very carefully as when you sign it, you will be giving up important legal rights)

In consideration of the acceptance of my entry form for these 2008 POWERLIFTING WORLD Championships, I
intend to be legally bound for not only myself, but also my heirs, executors and my administrators.

Additionally, I understand that Powerlifting is an inherently hazardous activity and that participation in this
sport exposes me to the risk of injury or death. I further understand that NEITHER the A.D.F.P.F. NOR the
W.D.F.P.F. will reimburse me for, or coverage of any medical expenses incurred by me as a result of injuries
that I might sustain, training for, traveling to or from, or participating in the competition.

In signing this release from liability, I waive and release anyone connected with this competition; i.e. the meet
directors, the American Drug-Free Powerlifting Federation (ADFPF), championships sponsors and staff, the World
Drug-Free Powerlifting Federation (WDFPF), the contest facilities or any persons associated with the competition
from any and all liability, including any results of negligence which may arise from this competition. Moreover, I
agree that any testing method selected by W.D.F.P.F. & A.D.F.P.F. recognized testing officers may be applied to
detect the presence of drugs, as listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) banned substances list which
SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE. I agree to co-operate fully with all required IOC & WADA sampling and testing
procedures. This includes any testing procedures that may be considered necessary prior to or after this event.

Should I fail to pass the drug testing procedures, I agree to forfeit any trophy, award, record or placing which I won
during the championships and I also forfeit any previous trophy, award, record or placing should the offence be
deemed serious enough, according to ADFPF & WDFPF rules, to warrant such an action. I understand and agree that
if I fail to pass the drug testing process, my name will appear on a published list of suspended members. If determined
that I failed the drug test, I agree to waive any claim for which legal relief is available. I also agree to waive any claim
that might arise under state, national or international law for defamation, slander, libel, or any other claim for which
legal relief is available.

I realize that if I do not attend the 2008 POWERLIFTING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS for any reason, I will forfeit
all fees that cannot be exchanged. I agree to pay any attorney fees and litigation expenses incurred by any person real
or corporate, whom I may sue in an effort to challenge this release from liability.

I understand that my agreement to pay attorney fees and litigation expenses is the SINE QUA NON for acceptance of
my entry in this championship. If any provision of this Release From Liability shall be deemed by a court of
competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the remainder of this Release from Liability shall remain in full force and effect. I
also certify with my signature that this release/agreement cannot be modified orally.

Signature of athlete:                                 __________      .     Date: _______________.

Signature of parent/guardian:                     _________           .     Date: _______________.

Certification: I hereby give my word of honor as an athlete that I have not used any strength inducing drugs (I.e., any
anabolic steroid, natural hormone or synthetic growth hormone) as part of my training during the past sixty months
(five years), nor have I used or will I use prescription diuretics or psychomotor stimulants during the seven days prior
to this competition.
