European Benchpress Championships in Kajaani, Finland.
The organisation of the European Benchpress Championships in Kajaani,
Finland was of a very high standard. This championship can be a model of
how an organiser should prepare and run a European championship.
Experienced and hard working people headed by Kyösti Kaupponen and Janne
Toivanen did in all respect prepare all technical details and run the whole
competition without mistakes. Making the best condition for lifters and
officials where highlighted all the time. The transport was timely organised,
the hotel was of high standard and the competition venue was a concert hall
close to the hotel with high quality scene, soft seats and good load speaking
system. The lifting was accompanied by a big score board, spectacular light
beams and the loaders were quick and did not do any mistake throughout the
whole competition. The championship was completed by a friendly banquet
with a lot of good eating and drinking.
Also the city of Kajaani supported the competition by giving about DM 7000in
cash to the organiser and provided free venue plus other support. With a sport
that does not attract too many spectators it is more or less impossible to
organise a good European championships without a good support from the
Speaking to the Major of the city he assured me that this championship they
considered as good PR for the city and they were happy to co-operate.
It was also a high standard of the lifting, as all together 16 European
Championships Records were broken. EPF has decided to test all record
breakers in 2000 in all categories even if not drawn by lot to the doping
control. Unfortunately Simone Hahn from Germany was not tested. As I was
responsible for the doping control I did not personally call Hahn for control as
she was already sitting in the doping control room when I looked for her. I
then assumed the doping controller did call her or she had requested a control
herself. However, she was only accompanying another German lifter I was told
much later. So due to that misunderstanding she was not tested and I must
apologise to her for this. However, she or her coach did not contact me to
require any test so I was not aware of the situation before long after the
competition was ended.
I hope leaders remember all useful details at this championship when they
perhaps will be a part of an organising committee in their own country for
future European championships. The standard we experienced in Kajaani is the
standard we like to see at our future championships and EPF are happy to
express a big THANK YOU to the organiser – you should all be proud of this
perfect organised championships!

I can agree to all Arnulf wrote about these championships. Heiner

New Prices for B-Test in Doping. When I received today the bills for the
two B-Test from Riesa, it was a big surprise. One test kost 812,-- DM. So I
phoned there why it is so expensive. I was told that the prices are now since
one year like that. I was also told that in London a B-Test is near 2000 DM. So
from now on if a lifter wishes a B-Test they must pay 850 in advance to the
EPF account.
In the timetable of the mens open 2000 was a small mistake, as Mike
Armstrong retired from all his offices, and I not know if he will sent out the
August Info I will print the correct timetable here.
