It is with great sadness we learn that Mr. Helge Laursen, former president of the Powerlifting Federation of Denmark, passed away on July 1st at the age of 66.
Mr. Laursen was a leading profile in the Danish Federation for decades and also served for many years within IPF, EPF and NPF.
He will be sorely missed by his many friends around the world. We, the members of NPF, remember him with respect and gratitude and send our condolences to his wife and son.

The NPF board has decided that Nordic Records hereafter will be registered according to the IPF rules.
The Bench Press Record will be registered in 3-lift meets and single lift Bench Press Records will be registered separately.
Our record registrar Timo Heiskanen has been working diligently to make the necessary changes and the lists are now up to date. The Single lift Bench Press records are soon to follow.
The 2016 NPF congress took place in Pilzen on May 11th.
