To Kettlebell Nation,
Here is an update regarding the process for achieving official rank and setting official records within the AAKA.

Rank 3 up to CMS can be achieved at Local AAKA competitions. Please submit competition video and a certificate signed by the judge or event host verifying your results to your national AAKA representative for rank approval.

Rank 3 up to MSIC can be achieved at Regional, National, International AAKA or IUKL competitions. All results achieved at these prestigious events will be converted to official rank, accordingly, at the competition. No video submittal is necessary.

Rank Pins will be mailed to the ranked athletes if they are not available on the day of the competition.

Due to the development of our new ranks for Women’s Double Kettlebells events, Men’s Single Kettlebell events, and Veterans category, all athletes competing in AAKA competitions starting on or after April 1, 2016 are eligible for rank retroactively. For example, if you compete in Men’s Single Kettlebell Long Cycle at an AAKA event before the official ranks are released, you can submit your video and results documentation for approval when the ranks are officially released.

Official AAKA National Records can only be achieved at Regional, National, International AAKA or IUKL competitions.

Official World Records can only be achieved at International Competitions as approved by AAKA or IUKL. Official National or World Records documentation will be mailed to athletes.
We look forward to your success on the platform.

Yuri Petunov
President, American Kettlebell Alliance
