It started well with Sonja Koponen, FIN improving the Nordic ones in category 45 kg to 77 kg in clean & jerk and 138 kg overall. In category 59 kg, there was a new Nordic record through Ine Andersson, NOR, 118 kg in clean & jerk and 208 kg in total. In class 64 kg, Finnish junior lifter Aino Luostarinen recorded six Nordic junior records, 88 and 91 in snatch, 110 and 113 in clean & jerk, as well as 201 and 204 overall.

The Nordic region's currently best women's lifter Solfrid Koanda, NOR, improved her own records and erased a Nordic standard result. Her record lift was 109 kg in snatch, 143 kg in clean & jerk, as well as 247 and 252 kg in total.

The women's lifters also took a considerable amount of medals. Ine Andersson won two bronze medals (stöt and total). Daniela Gherman, SWE, won bronze in the snatch, Patricia Strenius, SWE, became European champion in clean & jerk and total. Finally, Solfrid Koande won all three golds in her class.

Nine men's lifters from the Nordic countries were included and the best made it to Denmark, which ended up in 17th place in the national competition. Stefan Ågren was the closest to record the Nordic record, but stayed at 192 kg in the 102 kg class, which was a touch of the Nordic record.

Congratulations to all the Nordic weightlifters!
