Athletes will begin on their platform with an unloaded bar. On the call of “3, 2, 1, GO!”, the athlete will load their bar and make their first attempt. The athlete must verbally confirm the weight on the bar to their judge before making their attempt. If the bar or athlete come off the platform in anyway, the lift will not count. If any part of the athlete’s body touches the ground other than the feet, the lift will not count. The score for this event is the heaviest successful lift.
- The athlete must bring the bar from the floor to the hang position, come to a dead stop, then they may attempt their lift.
- The bar must be taken from the hang to overhead in one continuous motion.
A hang muscle snatch, power snatch, split snatch or squat snatch is permitted
For the rep to count, the athlete must show control of the bar overhead with their knees, hips and elbows fully locked out and the bar over the middle of the athlete’s body with the feet in line under the body
If any part of the athlete’s body touches the ground other than the feet, the lift will not count.
