Records update

The Swedish National Championships for juniors and subjuniors in Falun resulted in many new classic records, national as well as Nordic. The NPF record registry has been updated.
Congratulations to  Blyckert, Ahola, Norin, Engqvist, Engrenius, Winroth, Hedström and Jeppsson.

Nordic Classic Records – new standards

The NPF board has agreed to standards for Nordic Records in classic powerlifting subjuniors/juniors categories.
The standards take effect immediately and are effective until broken.
Classic records will be registered in classic competitions. Classic records can not be broken in equipped competitions, even if the lifter in question is lifting without equipment.
In all other respects paragraph 10 in the NPF Bylaws is valid for Classic Records as for Equipped Records.
Standards for other age categories will follow.


Strong girls

New Nordic records were set in the Women SubJunior category last week end.
Congratulations, Lena Sjøl, Anna Dorthea Espevik and Fríða Björk Einarsdóttir.
