Dear IPF Member Federations, dear Friends,
On behalf of the IPF Executive Committee it is with great sadness that I report to you the sudden passing of Mr. Jean-Yves Minelle, an athlete from the French Powerlifting Federation.
Jean-Yves had a stellar career and loved the sport of Powerlifting. He was a multi-time National and European Champion in the Bench Press, and was several times a medalist at the IPF World Masters Championships.
On behalf of the IPF Committee, and member federations, we send to Jean-Yves’s family, friends and to French Federation our sincerest condolences on the passing of our friend, Jean-Yves!
We shall dearly miss him. May he rest in peace!
President International Powerlifting Federation
