In Memoriam - Hans-Jürgen Gnitka

Dear Friends,

We received sad news that Mr. Hans-Jürgen Gnitka of the German Powerlifting Federation BVDK passed away.

Hans-Jürgen will be missed dearly as an international Cat1 referee and Chairman of the German referee commission.

On behalf of the IPF Executive Committee, we send our deepest condolences to Hans-Jürgen’s family, to the BVDK, to his friends, and to all of us that knew him. We will miss Hans-Jürgen very much.

May he rest in peace.
