The biggest event in IPF history is coming to an end in Salo, Finland this week end.
The organizers have impressed us, and so have the lifters.
A number of new Nordic classic subjunior and junior records were made by
Engrenius – Kirkanen – Sjöl – Lohivuo – Törrönen – Sakko – Tunroth – Andersson – Kuusisto – Närhi – Saber – Ala-Luopa – Berglund – Haraldsen – Perttula – Suomela and Hautala.
Strong lifting in Sundsvall last week resulted in eight new Nordic bench press records.
We congratulate Engrenius, Hauksdóttir, Lönn, Christensen, Fredriksen, Jamroz, Öberg and Smulter.
Incidentally five of these records were new World Records as well! Four of them still are.
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.
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.
New Nordic records were set in the Women SubJunior category last week end.
Congratulations, Lena Sjøl, Anna Dorthea Espevik and Fríða Björk Einarsdóttir.
