The governing body has praised the outcome of both events.
"The IBSA Powerlifting Committee is delighted to report on the success of the 2019 IBSA World Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships and first ever IBSA African Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships in Giza, Egypt, at the end of November," a statement said.
