Default York Women's Elite Bar for competition use

I'm hosting an olympic weightlifting competition this fall with the help of some experienced coaches. I'm shy a women's competition bar, but a friend has offered to loan us a York Elite 15kg bar.

Searching comes up with:


Where it says "These specifications are that of the International Weightlifting Federation".

Obviously, the link I found is for the men's bar, but is there any way to find out if this bar is legitimate for competition use? I don't see the normal IWF sticker on it, but I suppose that isn't to say it was removed at any point, or wore off depending on placement.

Default York Women's Bar

Hi Jacob,

It looks like the site you linked to is the U.K. York Site. Here is the link to the U.S. site www.yorkbarbell.com and the women's version of the bar you mentioned is the: 2010MM Women's Elite Competition Olympic Bar (15KG - 25MM)
Item #32001

York is not listed as a licensed bar manufacturer on IWF.net so I guess it depends on the scope of your competition.

Hope this helps.
