New members, including non-competitive members are always welcome to join as a member.
Girevoy (Kettlebell) sport is a unique cyclical power endurance sport . It combines some technical elements of Olympic weight lifting with aerobic qualities seen in whole body endurance sports such as rowing and cross country skiing. Athletes generally compete in 10 minute events , however relay races , marathons (up to 12 hours), strength challenges and power juggling are additional facets to competitive lifting.
