Passing of Natalia Rumyantseva
Dear members of the IPF,
It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Natalia Rumyantseva from Russia. Natalia was 7 times IPF World Champion and 8 times EPF European Champion and won multiple Russian National Championships as well. She had multiple world and European records. Natalia was inducted in to the EPF Hall of Fame in 2000 and she listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Until recently, Natalia was still competing in the Russian National Championships and was an exceptional coach for many of Russia’s top athletes. Gaston Parage, the President of the IPF and the Executive Committee would like to express their deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to Natalia’s family, friends and to the members of the Russian Powerlifting Federation.
