The Ultimate Girevik Cup is a kettlebell half marathon league held over 3 Stages to promote the development of non traditional kettlebell sport. Athletes have the possibility to develop their skills and performance along 3 stages.
Worldwide results are compiled online at the end of the year.
2020 is the second year with the new coefficient system and with the double kettlebell lifts.
The new coefficient system was introduced because the old system was too linear, and unfortunately it also had a slight skew for female athletes. At the same time, the double lift intro required a new scoring system. So far the coefficient system has worked out supert well and there has been no problems with it.
The new lifts with double kettlebells have had a slow start and very few athletes have joined in here af the UGC. On the other hand the double lifts have been very popular at both IKMF Euros and Worlds. In 2020 we hope more will raise to the challenge of the double Kettlebell lifts.
The UGC calendar and The Stages are set – and here we have a small new progression with an extension of the entire UGC to last 51 weeks. Stage 3 now last all the way up to X-mas!! The two major and important competitions are still placed in Stage 2 for the IKMF European Championships and in Stage 3 for the IKMF World Cups respectively.
