Jamaican powerlifter, Scott Jennings is now in Valletta, Malta competing in the highly anticipated 2023 International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) World Championship having qualified.

Jennings, a formidable powerlifter, embarked on his powerlifting journey when he joined The National Powerlifting Association of Jamaica (NPAJ) on August 3, 2021. With a relentless drive for success, Jennings quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the sport. 

As his journey progressed, Jennings received the exciting news that he had qualified to compete in the IPF World Championship. He is facing off against 35 other competitors in the fiercely competitive 83kg weight class.

Jennings eagerly prepared himself for the challenge ahead. In August 2022, he won the North America Powerlifting Federation (NAPF) Regional Championships, competing against a formidable field of nine athletes. 

Ending the year on a high note, Jennings returned to the NPAJ National Championship in December 2022, ready to defend his title. With unparalleled strength and focus, he outperformed his competitors once again.

The NPAJ is proudly supporting Jennings in his Valletta, Malta bid. With the support of the NPAJ and the nation behind him, Jennings embodies the motto “One Team, One Dream, One Goal.” 

Jamaica, known for its resilience and determination, stands tall and proud as Jennings represents the NPAJ and Jamaica on the world stage.
