Does the clock have to be in a video?

Does the clock have to be seen in the video or can the judge be in the video holding a stop watch? Its hard to have more than two athletes go at one time and keep the clock in the video

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer:

Video Submission Standards

Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear that proper depth and lockout is being reached on the overhead squats and the chest can be seen touching the bar on the pull-ups.
I read that as either having a second person in the frame, and a stopwatch in the frame, each visible to the video camera. Or the second person has a stopwatch in their hand (visible to them) and calls when time has expired.

The official video example has a running stopwatch visible to the video camera. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Gr5...ature=youtu.be (wfs)

I just "Invalid"'d a video someone sent in. No clock in the video, nor is the person in the frame who's watching the time. I could SORTA, I think, hear someone calling out the 3-minute marks, but with music blaring and a woman cheerleading, it was an effort. Seems logical that the time reference should be an obvious part of the video.
