QualificationEdit

There were 120 male and 80 female competitors. The bulk of the quota places will be decided by reference to the IPC Powerlifting Rankings on 29 February 2016. Subject to a quota limit of one place per National Paralympic Committee, the top 8 ranked male, and top 6 ranked female athletes in each weight division will gain a quota place for their NPC. If they are the only lifter from their NPC in that list, that lifter shall gain the place; if an NPC has two or more lifters in quota place ranking position, the choice of lifter will be for the NPC from that number.[1]

Two further quota places per event will be awarded by the Bipartite Commission.[1]

The following is a summary of the qualification places at the 2016 Summer Paralympic Powerlifting event.
