[QUOTE=Chris Lomen;1267250]Question about movement standards, specifically for Scaled. For box step overs...do both feet have to touch on top? Seems like no, if they're technically allowed to jump completely over, but step ups in the judges course said both feet touch, but this is a step over not a step up...so I'm just going around in circles.

Hate the ambiguity of this sometimes. Don't want to make my athletes do anything that isn't required, but also don't want to give them an unfair advantage if I'm wrong. Has anyone seen an official response from CFHQ on this one?[/QUOTE]

[B]This is the standard[/B]
There is no requirement to stand tall while on top of the box. A two-foot takeo is always required, and only the athlete’s feet may touch the box. The athlete may jump on top of the box using a two-foot landing and then jump or step o to the other side, or the athlete may jump completely over the box. If jumping over the box, the feet must go over the box, not around it, and the athlete must use a two-foot landing.

What happened to Vellner's score? He's down to 16th on the leaderboard and Fikowski is 6th.

Vellner was assessed a major penalty after video review due to touching his body with his empty hand multiple times on the snatches.

Just watched some of it and he definitely did in the round of 20. Used his left arm on his knee/thigh as he picked up the dumbbell. May have done it more but quit watching.

Is there language in the current ruleboook that allows for major or minor penalties to be applied on non video submissions at this stage of the open?

So, I do have a question... I judged someone but I did so at another affiliate. How are their scores validated?

Whoever the box owner is at that affiliate should be the one the validates the score, but it wouldn't hurt to give that owner a heads up that you judged athlete so and so. That athlete will still need to submit their score online and have their affiliate owner do the validation like normal. Hope that helps!
