This is an international competition being held by EKA during July and August 2018. It will involve three separate lifts of jerk, snatch, and long cycle. You do not have to enter each lift. Each lift will be open for entry for seven days and only a single entry can be submitted. Double or single bells can be used for jerk and long cycle, and if using a single bell only one hand change is permitted. Each set should be ten minutes long. Single bell is open to both male and female lifters. No discrimination here!
Entry is open for the first two weeks of July (2018) and you can sign up here.
Entry costs £10 for EKA members, £15 otherwise. As part of your entry, you must enter the lifts and bell weights being used for each lift, and then use those during the lifts later in the competition period.
Entries can be submitted here. It is your responsibility to provide a link to an uploaded video; it can be unlisted on youtube if you’d rather others didn’t see it. It is also down to you to ensure you select the correct lift in the submission form, and provide the same name and email address on each submission as with your original entry.
Videos for submissions must be filmed from the front with you facing the camera. The whole of your body, and the bell, must be visible at full extension (i.e. when the bell is overhead). Again, EKA cannot be held responsible if you submit videos without this and receive a zero score for that lift.
Medals will be awarded after the competition is over. These will be in adult, junior, veteran, and para-athlete categories. Specific bell weights will be available within these categories. For details see the entry form.
The planned schedule is:
- July 1st to 14th – entry is open
- July 15th to 21st – jerk submissions open
- July 29th to August 4th – snatch submissions open
- August 12th to 18th – long cycle submissions open
