Conversion to kg

Are there official weights in kilograms for WOD 13.1?
I found this thread in the same topic from last year, is it still valid?

Hoping for a reply from official HQ staff.

Re: Conversion to kg

This is covered in the CF Games 2013 rule book. It is on the Games site.

20 kg bar = 45 lbs
15 kg bar = 35 lbs

Use change plates to get to the equivalent in pounds.

Re: Conversion to kg

Yes I understand the weight for the bars. Im wondering if the conversion for the total weights according to the link is accepted or not.

Re: Conversion to kg

35 lbs 15,9 kg
40 lbs 18,1 kg
45 lbs 20,4 kg
50 lbs 22,7 kg
60 lbs 27,2 kg
75 lbs 34,0 kg
95 lbs 43,1 kg
115 lbs 52,2 kg
135 lbs 61,2 kg
145 lbs 65,8 kg
155 lbs 70,3 kg
165 lbs 74,8 kg
185 lbs 83,9 kg
195 lbs 88,5 kg
225 lbs 102,1 kg
245 lbs 111,1 kg
250 lbs 113,4 kg
275 lbs 124,7 kg
295 lbs 133,8 kg
315 lbs 142,9 kg

1 pood 16,4 kg
1,5 pood 24,6 kg
2 pood 32,8 kg

These are all the weights used in the girl WOD's and hero WOD's. I wouldn't worry too much about getting it precise. If you take the closest multiple of 5 kg I'd still say it's Rx'd. It's not your problem that they used a crappy units system.

They should just convert all the weights used in WOD's to multiples of 5 kg (2 kg with dumbells). Only 3 countries in the world still use pounds officially, or 5.3% of the world population.

Re: Conversion to kg

1 kg = 2.2 lbs. That's not changing regardless of what HQ says...
