New Standards to Achieve Australian Records

New Standards to Achieve Australian Records

News
In 2018 GSAA raised the standards for achieving an Australian Record in Traditional 10 minute Girevoy Sport Lifting. These high standards continue for 2019! There was a bit of furore about the introduction of the New Standard for achieving an Australian Record. This was mainly due to the confusion between Achieving a Rank (see yesterday’s post) and an Australian Record. It’s really quite simple and here’s the low down on how to set Australian Records: Can only be achieved at GSAA events with digital counters The full time of 10 minutes must be completed for each event, before putting the kettlebell or kettlebells down to be eligible. ***NOTE: If doing Traditional Biathlon you must complete 10 min in both Jerk and Snatch to be eligible for an Australian Record Film…

Updated 2019 Australian Ranking Table

Updated 2019 Australian Ranking Table

News
The Girevoy Sport Australia Association (GSAA) is pleased to announce it has developed a new ranking table, which will be known as the GSAA Ranking table. This table will replace the IUKL/IKSFA tables as the primary sorting tool for competitors at all GSAA competitions in Australia going forward. This update will eliminate confusion created by the use of multiple tables by the GSAA. The new table is easier to read and shows the rankings for men and women on the same page, rather than on separate tables, which is quicker and easier for both coaches and athletes to reference. It also allows for both genders to have rankings for single and double bells giving the GSAA community "equal opportunity". The GSAA has used the IUKL/IKSFA tables since 2007 in the absence…
