They allowed snatch balance to count for the max OHS singles at the GAMES last summer. So it would be strange for it to not count when the weight is so much lower.

[QUOTE=Michael Cook;1249975]I think snatch balance is not allowed. OHS starts and finishes in full lockout overhead with hips and knees extended. The rules specifically allow for a snatch to count, but don't specifically allow snatch balance. I think cfhq should have specified the start and finish position of the OHS. I think sn balance is covered under the "uncommon movements" clause.[/QUOTE]
But here's the thing, it's not an uncommon movement, and you could clean and jerk into the OHS position without any question, so it's just a difference of front rack/back rack.

Here's word for word from the games page
"The hip crease must be below the top of the knee at the bottom. A full squat snatch is permitted, but not required, to start the movement if standard depth is achieved."
"The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body. You may not use a rack."

And watching the video I posted from 2014 - he used a snatch balance (was a top in the world score as well) and it was at first invalidated by HQ, but then the full score was re-instated.

[QUOTE=Alex Burden;1249976]Is there something wrong with the leaderboard?

If someone has scaled for 15.1 & 15.2 they should be below someone that has scaled 15.1 and Rx 15.2 right?

Checked my own score and that did'nt seem to be the case.

I noticed a few other scores where they have Rx 15.1 and scaled 15.2 but they place higher than someone that has Rx both 15.1 and 15.2

Seems CFHQ have a little programming issue. Or have I totally lost my mind?[/QUOTE]
It all depends on where you place Rx vs. Scaled. For any given workout, one Rx reps ranks above any number of scaled reps. But, overall, your points are still the sum of your ranks. For example, say five people are doing the Open, A-E. A-D are doing it Rx, but E did one workout scaled.

Workout 1: A (1), B (2), E (3), D (4), C (5)
Workout 2: E (1), C (2), B (3), A (4), D (5)
Workout 3: D (1), B (2), A (3), C (4), E (5s)

Total scores are: A (8), B (7), C (11), D (10), E (9), which ranks:

B, A, E, D, C

E is ahead of D and C, even though E did one of the workouts scaled, in which they came in last, by definition, because their performance on the ones they did Rx was good enough to make up for it.

Got it :)

So what group does someone end up in if they mix both scaled and Rx?

I went scaled for the 15.1 and Rx 15.2 and now I can see myself in the Rx group or does this depend on your last choice?

The RX leaderboard shows everyone. You just have to search for yourself at the bottom if you did scaled. Near as I can tell, the scaled leaderboard filters out people who did all WODs RXd.

Hopefully I am not at the bottom :D

[QUOTE=Nicholas Wheeler;1249973]what is the general consensus on snatch balancing during this WOD?[/QUOTE]

It is allowed.

What happened to Noah Ohlsen's score on 15.2? It was like 413 or something, but it seems to have been taken down...

Looks like he must have redone it and got one more rep. You caught it in between him withdrawing his old score and validation of his new one. He's back at 414 reps.
