CF 312 Olympic Weightlifting Meet 2017

Plan to participate in the competition, want to volunteer to assist, or just want to cheer on your friends?




Saturday, October 21, 12 p.m. We expect the event to last 4-5 hours depending on the number of participants.

The Details:

Two Lifts:

  • Clean & Jerk – 1 clean, 1 jerk (no jerk reattempts if missed)
  • Snatch – one smooth motion ground to overhead
    • 3 attempts for each lift
    • After first attempt cannot decrease weight (only way to go is up!)
    • Even playing field. We will be using the Sinclair Coefficients (link to these) which will normalize the weight classes, making it a strength to body weight representation.
  • Judging Standards:
    • Lockout
    • Show control/Finish in frontal plane
    • Stay on platform/stay on your feet (more details to come)

The Fun Stuff:

Lifting shoes, singlets, grunting and general shows of spirit and bad ass-ery are recommended, but not required.
Prizes for top three finishers!

Grab your lifting buddy and get ready…training starts today!!
