World kettlebell championship 2017, Seoul, Korea

IUKL World championship was held 15th-19th November in Seoul (South Korea). Competition was in Olympic park where Olympic Games 1988 were hosted. This time around 500 athletes from 35 countries came to Seoul for competing. There were more athletes from Asian countries than usually. 

TAFISA President had speech of opening ceremony and took part of awarding ceremony the last day of competition.  Russian athletes had best results of most weight categories. Second place of team competition – Kazakhstan, then Ukraine, Lithuania and Korea.

New world records from this championship. Biathlon. Bw class 73kg: Vladimir Smirnov, Jerk – 141, biathlon – 234.5 points. Bw class 78 kg: Mikhail Kvashnin, snatch – 234. Bw – 85 kg: Anton Anasenko, snatch  - 208 points. Bw class 95 kg: Vladimir Gurov, biathlon – 255points.

Long cycle. Only one new world record – 88 points by Pavel Chuev in bw class 78 kg.

Ladies one arm LC was a part of official WC program. But two arm LC was more interesting this time (it was just trial competition). Very impressive competing was between athletes from different countries. They had no bodyweight categories. Kim Fox from US won first place with 64 reps of 24s. Støfring Beate Kårstad has only one rep less result – 63 and silver medal. 

The next world championship will be in Daugavpils (Latvia), October 2018.
