GSAA Australian National Kettlebell Championship Recap

Posted by Kettlebell Kings on Sep 6, 2017 1:28:01 PM

Kettlebell Kings recently sponsored the GSAA Australian National Kettlebell Championships at Lonedog in Albury, New South Wales and we are really excited to report about the event! Those who placed at The Championship will be representing Team Australia at The IUKL World Championships in Seoul, South Korea this year. This was the first time in event history that uniform bells were used by all the lifters and they competed with our Competition Kettlebells. We shipped quite a bit of kettlebells to Melbourne and from there they were distributed to the event location in Albury as well as to competitors who had pre-ordered them for training.

One of the exciting things about Kettlebell Sport is how it is growing. Each event we sponsor has been setting attendance records for participants and spectators and this one was no different. 50 Athletes competed at The Championships which makes this the largest Australian Championships ever held. The crows reached up to 300 people with over 500 coming through during the day to support and watch the athletes. This was the first time that our Competition Kettlebells have been used at an event in Australia and as mentioned earlier this was the first time all of one type of kettlebell was used at The Championships.

One of our goals in supporting Kettlebell Sport has been to help events have uniform bells so that all lifters can train and use the same equipment. We believe this is important when establishing national teams, records and ensuring that properly weighted equipment is used. 

Kettlebell Sport in general is growing greatly in Australia as it is around the world, 2017 has had the most competitors compete in GSAA events than in any previous year.

One of the coolest things about this event is the team format, so while their are individual awards, competitors came representing their different kettlebell clubs from all over the world and competed on total team scores as well. So, there was an amazing atmosphere of individual and team competition. 

Records Broken

 There were a number of North American and World Records set at the event! Some big time numbers put up in all lifts.  If you have never attended a Kettlebell Sport event we highly recommend looking for one in your area, these competitors are INCREDIBLE.  You can see video below of some of the rep counts, but men and women alike were putting up big numbers with serious weight. 

Prizes

One of the really unique things about this competition is the awards that were given out. There were awesome medals and trophies given out to the competitors for their individual performances as well. Additionally, Kettlebell Kings sponsored the event by providing all kettlebells used at the event as well as gift certificates to Kettlebellkings.com.
