World Pull-Up Organization


The World Pull-Up Organization is the international governing body for the sports of pull-up. Established in 2018, our goal is to bring the pull-up athletes of the world together and to develop one of the oldest exercises into a global sport. Most significantly, we will organize the World Pull-Up Championships from 2019 onwards.


The founding members of the World Pull-Up Organization established the Finnish Pull-Up Association (Suomen Leuanveto ry) in 2013 and have since organized pull-up competitions to a combined total of over 1000 participants.

Pull-up sports have a long tradition in Finland with national championships dating back to early 1980’s.
