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 the lift or lifts for the full time limit
- Submit the video to GSAA within 7 days of the Competition/Event completion firstname.lastname@example.org
- Adhere to the GSAA Video Recording and Submission Requirements (see below)
- Video Recording from competition and Submission
For 2019 GSAA is introducing a standard for video recording and submission.
- All videos must comply with the following:
i. Image must be stable
iii. No oblique angles
- Centred on the Athlete
i. Athlete fills most of the frame
ii. Not filmed from floor
- Kettlebell, Elbows, Hands, Feet and Knees must be clearly visibly
- Remove the Music
i. YouTube may block your videos so if in-doubt remove the music!
- Submitted within 7 Days of the Competition/Event completion
