The Kettlebell Lifting Championship ended at the military base of the Southern Military District (SMD) in Armenia.

More than 100 people from more than 10 army teams took part in the competition. Athletes competed in 9 weight categories from 58 kg to strongmen in the absolute weight category.

The day before the competition, the mandatory weighing of the participants and their distribution into categories was carried out.

Before the competition, all participants underwent a mandatory safety briefing to prevent injuries. Directly in the gym, a group of specialists from the medical service of the military base was on duty. The strength of the participants was assessed by a panel of judges from among instructors in physical training.

The sports event was attended not only by military personnel, but also by members of their families, who actively supported the participants.

The winners and prize-winners in their weight categories received gifts from the command of the unit, and will also represent the Russian military base at the championship of the Southern Military District.
