Event description

Description

This event is designed to give novice/intermediate lifters a "feel" for what an Olympic Weightlifting Competition is like, and a chance to max out their snatch and clean & jerk. It is purely for fun, will be casual, and will not be as strictly run as those led by the IWF or national federations. Any level is welcome, and please feel free to share this event with friends or Crossfits that may be interested.

The cost will be 30 chf per athlete. We will allow max 40 competitors, ideally 20 girls and 20 guys, but will be first come first served. No refunds 7 days prior to event. Spectators welcome for free, so bring your friends and family.

Each person will have 3 attempts for snatch and 3 attempts for C/J, and your best scores from each will be added together for your total. Once your name is called and the bar is properly loaded, you will have 1 minute to complete the lift each time. Scoring will be based on your weigh-in that day and calculated using the Sinclair Coefficient. During weigh-in, you will need to give your starting weights for each the snatch and the C/J. We recommend your starting weight be a weight that you are nearly 100% sure that you can hit. Lowest weights will start first, and order will continue on with lightest to heaviest weights.

Tentative schedule as follows, but will depend on the amount of participants...follow us on Instagram @playwarehousegym and Facebook for schedule updates closer to the date. If less women competitors, then the men's weigh-in and competition will start earlier. Final schedule will be posted on the Friday night 29.11.19.
