The Ultimate Girevik Cup is a kettlebell half marathon league held over 3 Seasons to promote the development of non traditional kettlebell sport. Athletes have the possibility to develop their skills and performance along 3 seasons.
Worldwide results are compiled online at the end of the year.
2019 will take The Ultimate Girevik Cup to a new level as we introduce a new coefficient system and 3 new lifts with double Kettlebell.
Double Kettlebell lifts was introduced in IKMF in 2018, and since the UGC is “training” for the major championships in IKMF double lifts must be part of UGC. The new double lifts are Long Cycle, Jerk and Half Snatch.
The double Kettlebell lifts made it necessary to introduce a new coefficient system. The “Old Coefficient” was not giving equal point to Women compared with Men, so of course a new system was needed.
The “bad” news is that you cannot compare your new 2019 results with a previous season, but it is a new beginning! The new system can still be used in countries where The Ultimate Girevik Cup is the National Championship in marathon.
- Season 1: 01.01.2019 – 14.04.2019
- Season 2: 15.04.2019 – 04.08.2019
- Season 3: 05.08.2019 – 01.12.2019
