Kettlebell Sport, also known as Girevoy Sport, is an endurance style of lifting kettlebells that is used in competition. The objective of a kettlebell competition is to complete as many repetitions as possible in 10 minutes, either with one switch (if you are using one kettlebell), or without setting the kettlebells down (if you are using two kettlebells).
The events you can compete in vary from competition to competition, but traditionally there are three main events:
1. Long Cycle: 10 minutes of Clean & Jerk with two kettlebells.
2. Biathlon: 10 minutes of Jerk with two kettlebells, followed by 10 minutes of Snatch with one kettlebell.
3. Snatch: 10 minutes of Snatch with one kettlebell.
Some competitions offer variations of the above lifts, including Long Cycle with one kettlebell (One Arm Long Cycle or OALC), Snatch with two kettlebells, Jerk with one or two kettlebells, 5 minute events, or events that allow multiple hand switches or set-downs.
