In consideration of your accepting this entry, I hereby for myself and my heirs, release any & all rights/claims for damages for injuries I may have against USA Powerlifting, American Drug Free Powerlifting Association, USA Powerlifting of Wisconsin, Joe Lewis, all other meet directors & staff, and any & all other participating sponsors, supporters, referees, and spotter/loaders as a result of my traveling to, and/or from and/or participating in, the above listed competition. I make this release and waiver of claim with full knowledge of the hazards and inherent rights associated with the above listed competition. I hereby assume the risk of injury and property damage/loss. Also, in consideration of accepting this entry, I hereby sign over my rights to be videoed and/or photographed to the meet directors and/or his designee(s). I am fully aware that I will receive no royalties and/or compensation for resale/use of the videotapes and/or photographs.
In consideration of the acceptance of my entry in this competition I intend to be legally bound, for not only myself but also for my heirs, assigns, executors, trustees and administrators. In signing this release from liability I waive and release everyone connected 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 which the meet director and the sponsors of this meet use to detect the presence of strength-inducing drugs SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE. That is, whether I think results of the tests are right or wrong I agree that I have no right to challenge the results of the drug tests. I further agree to submit to any and all tests which may be necessary to complete drug testing. Should I fail to pass drug tests, I agree to forfeit any trophy or award which I otherwise have won. I understand and agree that if I fail to pass the drug tests, my name will appear on a published list of suspended members. If it is determined that I have failed the drug test, I agree to waive any claim for which legal relief is available.
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 form. I understand that my agreement to pay attorney fees and litigation expenses is the Sine Qua Non for the acceptance of my entry in this contest. If any provision of this release form liability shall be deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the remainder of this Release of Liability shall remain in full force and effect. I also certify with my signature that this release/agreement cannot be modified orally.
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 thirty six months, nor have I used prescription diuretics or psychomotor stimulants during the seven days prior to this meet.
