Rhino Powerlifting Club South Africa is a national Powerlifting club run by lifters for lifters. We are affiliated to the Global Powerlifting Committee (GPC) that provides a platform for our strength athletes to test themselves against the best in the world. The club was founded by Ian Morris in January 2013 and even though we are still a small “federation” we already have several world champions and world records to show for it.
