TECHNICAL COMMITTEE NEWSLETTER NO 1 2007
IPF Powerlifting International Powerlifting Federation
 
New Rules 2007
 
The Technical Committee are grateful to delegates to Congress 2006 for their confidence in both the Technical Committee and Executive Committee by overwhelmingly voting
( en bloc ) for all of the proposals forwarded by both committees.  In actual fact the  " sea" of green cards ( for ) was only interrupted by  one solitary orange card ( against )
"liferaft" which I believe was to oppose the deletion of the 44 kg class for Open and Masters.
 
From the 1st January 2007 the following changes to the 2006 rules will become applicable.

LIFTER AND COACH REPRESENTATIVES
IPF Powerlifting International Powerlifting Federation
 
At the meeting of the Executive Committee and Technical Committee before Congress was held in November last, it was proposed that a lifter and coach be opted onto the Technical Committee to put forward any ideas or points of view that may concern lifters and coaches generally.  The selection of each has yet to be made.

FAILURE SYSTEM
IPF Powerlifting International Powerlifting Federation
 
At the 2006 combined Men's and Women's Open championships, ( which was an excellent meet organised by the Norwegian Powerlifting Federation ). for the first time, I witnessed a lights system  in respect of the reason/s for failure.  I had hoped in 1992 when  I first introduced the card system experimentally that someone would eventually
devise something more sophisticated.  I spoke with Tone Ingebretsen ( Norwegian Powerlifting President ) on this subject.  She said that her husband is responsibile for the wiring diagram and that he is willing to send it to anyone interested.  Tone can be contacted on e:mail toninge@broadpark.no
 
GAMESMENSHIP, TIMEWASTING OR - - -?
IPF Powerlifting International Powerlifting Federation
 
At one of our recent Championships a lifter failed to attempt any benchpresses, letting the clock run on each and for some unknown reason raising the weight each time.
Starting  "poundage" was entered on the scoreboard for the deadlift and he was about to be called onto the platform.  The jury were informed, and then asked the coach if the lifter would be making an attempt.  This, was unnecessary, for unless a bona fide attempt had been made on the bench, then the lifter would be unable to lift for a medal in the deadlift - rule 13 GENERAL RULES OF POWERLIFTING.
 
TECHNICAL CONTROLLER
IPF Powerlifting International Powerlifting Federation
 
The position of Technical Controller is now official.  The appointment/s being made by the Technical Committee at the time of the Referee/Jury selection.  It is an important post, duties being - Checking lifters attire before they mount the platform ( now, not necessary for the jury to check the lifter after record attempts ).  Making sure that it is the correct named lifter.  Assuring that the designated coaching area only is used by the official coaches.  Keeping order in the wrapping area.
