For the application of the judge's test, here are some important details.


The process is as follows:


1. Create your account (email and password). This only serves to personalize the experience. No use of your data.


2. The user asks the administrator to perform the test. His test is then in “submission”. The user must wait for the administrator's response (change the session status to "accepted" or "not accepted").


3. The user makes the payment on the Paypal account ( remember to check the box: Send to a relative or a friend, if we wish to avoid taxes and accept your payment.


In your PayPal message, indicate your name, country and associated email address.


4. The administrator verifies the payment on the PayPal account and validates access to the test.


5. The user performs the test. There is no timer. He can close the app and continue where he left off.


6. The country representative must complete the Google form found below. This is to ensure that the athletes belong to an IKMF member country, that country representatives can know who is being judged among their athletes and to facilitate the control of judge requests to the administrator.


7. If the success rate is 75% or more and all the previous steps have been completed, the diploma is created and sent to the athlete.



Important information:


- The application is built on a free database until reading and writing thresholds are reached. In order to support the first wave of registrations, access to the test will be limited to a few people per week.



Recommendations for judges in the International Championship IKMF

  • If you know you are going to be a judge in the next championship, review the regulations
  • Remember in advance the turn of Fly and the platform on which you will judge, and get ready early
  • Put all your attention on the task you are doing, avoid distractions "The athlete is the most important"
  • Try to keep a counting voice and point partial counts (technology can fail and ruin the athlete's result)
  • Enforce the rules, be condescending with the athlete you judge means being unfair to the rest of the athletes

Recommendations for the organization in the International Championship IKMF

  • Make sure that the competition area can only be accessed by authorized persons at any time (judges and athletes in turn of participation)
  • The competition and warming zone must be separated, and competition zones can not be accessed when there are athletes competing
  • The competition material (Kettlebell) will be permanently visible on the platforms, not allowing the transfer of Kettlebell between warming zone and platforms
  • The preparation of the competition Kettlebell (Magnesium application) will be done in the time that a fly and another one takes place, and will be done in the back of the platforms, outside the public's vision
  • The organization will enable a place next to the platform judge, intended for the athlete's assistant
  • The assistance to the athlete will be carried out in the fastest possible way, not remaining the assistant next to the platform longer than necessary
  • The competition area must be totally clean and clear, not being visible containers with magnesium, towels, bottles etc ...
  • The organization will ensure the cleaning of the area of platforms of water, magnesium etc ... by cleaning the area when necessary
  • Observe the discipline, and the good image of the competition grants seriousness and credibility to our organization
  • The chief judge, together with the organization, will be responsible for compliance with the discipline and the good course of the competition. 

/!\  Warning  /!\

  • Each country must provide 1 official judge and with the updated test for every 2 athletes registered for a championship. At the time of registration, this information must be provided.  If any country does not contribute any judge to the championship, a double registration must be paid to cover that work.

    Once the registration is completed, the total work time of the athletes of each country will be calculated. In this way, this accumulated time will be the time during which the judges of that country will have to act as judges.


    For example:

    *A country with 5 athletes who all take 1 DHS Games event

    5 tests X 10 min = 50 min


    *A country with 5 athletes and each one performs 1 marathon test and 1 Games test

    5 tests x 60min= 300 min

    5 tests x 10 min = 50 min

    total time accumulated by the country = 350 min


    This will be the time that each country must perform the functions of judge. It does not have to be compensated in the same way as it is done, IKMF will be in charge of distributing that time in the best possible way for a smooth running of the event.

  • One judge is paid 10€ per hour.
