Rich Peters and NASA are a solid Fed. He was the first to really have drug tested meets back in the day. I guess the idea behind the 'Power Sports' category is get more people interested. I've never been a fan of it, not really my thing, but have seen some impressive 'strict' curling. Some of the top men curl more than their bodyweight. Many NASA powerlifters are ranked at the top of their 'single-ply' weight class in the combined Federation ranking.
