Well here's one of the Camille no-rep

I don't think it was about depth but rather standing straight up? :dunno:

I went back and watched Camille's heat. We have the luxury of rewatching the event and critiquing at a speed of our discretion. It's very different when the judge is making a decision in real time.

That being said, the first no rep was a good call. Squat depth was not below parallel. Second no rep could have gone either way. Squat depth was borderline. These happened on the first barbell.

Third no rep was confusing. It looked like the judge punched one hand to call good rep, then immediately changed her mind to signal no rep. The lockout looked good, but maybe it didn't look that way to the judge? Maybe it looked like her arms were forward, i.e. her arms were straight with shoulders tipped forward? I dunno.

Matt Fraser in first with a cushion of almost 90 points.

Tim probably similar to how Froning rubs me wrong.

Not sure why he does, but he does. I am sure Rich is awesome in person and if we met and hung out I would imagine my opinion would change. Depending on how this weekend shakes out I wonder if you will see Rich come back to try and possibly beat Mat next year.

I think Ben Smith will give him a run too, he has done well in the past in sprint events and I don't think it's Fraser's jam. Expect Ben to do very well today in the sprints, the soccer chipper and the C and J. Fraser for sure will do well in the soccer chipper and the C and J. At least that was has been announced so far.

I'm not sure why but Fraser just rubs me the wrong way. I can't quite figure out why, but it sure looks like he's going to slot right into Rich's shoes. He's been dominant so far, I don't know how fast he is for the 2 sprint events, but regardless, if there is a barbell involved he's going to do well in those events plus his cardio is killer.

I agree with you. It seems like the judge was so focused on looking at depth, which CLB got here, and that's why she at first gave the "good rep" signal. Then she realized CLB maybe didn't stand straight up (remember shoulders and hips have to be stacked on top of each other) and changed her mind to a no rep. It does kinda look like CLB is leaning a bit forward at the end, already thinking about going towards the next barbell.

Sucks for her, and I get wanting to go through the movements as fast as possible means doing the bare minimum required range of motion, but as an athlete you need to leave no doubt in the mind of the judge.

CLB honestly IMHO got no repped for 3 bad lifts. First was for sure, second i agree was a close call and in real time I won't second guess the judge and the 3rd she was so far forward.

As with many comps I've done and judged a judge can sadly make or break an athlete.

I can't disagree with any of her 3 no rep calls but I can also say that many of the other judges let some similar ones slip/go by.

Saw the same thing on some of the male athlete judges.

Look at the push-up calls on Murph. Some got away with a lot less range.

Joys of the human side.

I notice on the leaderboard that Chad Mackay has withdrawn from the competition. His Instagram reports that he broke a rib during the Heavy DT event.
