UK Records Updates!

british

So many records set over the last few months with athletes from the UK competing in the GSU British Championship and also in international competition at the IGSF World Championship in Greece and IUKL Worlds in South Korea. We’ve worked to compile a complete list of new record holders below from all the official results, and the UK records page has been updated but if there are any results or records missing then just let us know on girevoysportunion@gmail.com

Stay tuned too as we will be adding a Marathons section to the records page to record the records from UK athletes in this discipline too!

Congratulations to all!

With this in mind we will allow retrospective applications to rank for the whole of 2017.
So please bear with us, your submissions have been viewed and reps verified but at this time we cannot officially award any Ranks based upon lift double bell lifting for female athletes.
