WAKSC Grand Prix Results – Scotland

posterscotland

So this year’s Scottish Championship is done and dusted! We’ll get results up hopefully by later today and should have some good pictures coming for you of the day.

As well as being part of the GSU Four Nations this competition was part of the WAKSC Grand Prix, here are the results as submitted to that league. The rank column shows the relevant Ketacademy rank. You can apply for this ranking through the ketacademy ranking website. Note they now charge for this. The 2017 Irish Championship & the upcoming British Championship are also part of the WAKSC Grand Prix this year, so you can earn extra points for the leagure by attending that too!

GSU members can apply for ranking by GSU tables through the GSU website as normal. No charge. Double ranking tables are in process and will hopefully be out in time for the British Championships, video’d submissions will be accepted then for doubles ranks backdated to the start of the year when they were introduced in GSU competitions 🙂

NB remember as stated in the event the event info WASKC only count double bell jerk/long for this league, single bell is still counted for for all GSU results.

Male results

Female Results WAKSC

Scottish Championship 2017

20785940_675410489316492_9131090858767573091_oThanks to everyone who made the 2017 Scottish Championship a success! So many people came together to help and make sure it went to plan – from all of the team at Barbreck Studio to the extended kettlebell family offering help with scoring, providing bells, setting up, judging. Practically everyone there helped in some way!

Thanks also to the sponsors, including Wolverson Fitness and Arnold Clark.

Great day all round! Scores are now live on the Girevoy Sports Union website, and will also be prepared and submitted for the WAKSC – World Association of Kettlebell Sport Clubs Grand Prix League later this week.
