Credible Drug-Free Powerlifting Without the Politics.
We regret to report that the founder of the ADFPF, Judy Gedney, passed away this morning (8/21/2019) after a long illness. Judy, along with a handful of others, was instrumental in pushing for drug testing in the early 80s. Through those efforts, drug tested divisions and organizations (ADFPA, WDFPF and later the USAPL, and ADFPF) became a reality. It is fair to say that Judy’s legacy has forever touched the sport of powerlifting. Judy’s leadership in powerlifting was only surpassed by her leadership in everyday life. Judy was always loving and kind to everyone around her while always staying strong in her Christian values. We will post information regarding services once they are known. Judy loved this sport and the sport loves Judy Gedney.
