We recently looked at some of the best male powerlifters in the junior category. You can check out the list here. Today we’re taking a look at the top 5 female powerlifters in the junior category as well.
These rankings are based on the individual athlete’s DOTS number. For your reference “DOTS” stands for Dynamic Objective Team Scoring System. The DOTS system uses a series of complex formulas, taking into account athlete’s weight, gender, the type of event they participated in, and the category to calculate a final number. You can use the DOTS formula for yourself using this online calculator. The Federal Association of German Powerlifters adopted the DOTS rating system in 2019 for team competitions.
So here are some of the best female junior powerlifters ranked according to their DOTS score.
