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.
