IUKL is a member of the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA).

Head of Disciplinary-tehnical committee – Filipp Soldatenkov 

On August 14, 2015 IUKL became a signatory to the World Anti-Doping Code. Today IUKL is listed on the WADA website as the only organization in the kettlebell lifting, which has signed the Code: https://www.wada-ama.org/en/code-signatories#OutsideOlympicMovement

WADA’s mission is to lead a collaborative worldwide movement for doping-free sport.”


Fundamental Rationale for the Code and IUKL’s Anti-Doping Rules: Doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, the principle of fair play, medical ethics and can be harmful for the health of the gireviks.

! Doping is strictly prohibited !   

In kettlebell lifting, for those who infringe doping provisions, a penalty may be imposed extending to, in a relevant case, a life ban from all competition, in every sports discipline (Olympic and non-Olympic).
