last year's weights for the individual men's sprint carry was 100lbs / 120lbs / 150lbs

this year the 16-17 year old teens will be doing 100 / 120 / 140. only 50 meters with each but 140lbs seems fairly daunting :eek:

Wonder what kind of sand bags they will use for 100#, 120# and 140#?
Event #2 wonder if max thruster from the ground or from the rack?
SQT- wonder if they are going to do squat snatches or power snatches?
Long chipper- 1000 meter run wonder if that is 2 laps of the hill coarse?

When SQT was posted on main site in 2010 it was ground to overhead anyhow you liked. Back then I trained at a globo and had to use an EZ Curl bar as the longer bars could not be taken outside.

I'm interested to know what the standard for a sandbag to the shoulder is, whether it's thrown over the shoulder like the D-Ball or cleaned up into the rack position.

I'm guessing thrusters are from the rack, otherwise why not call it max Squat Clean Thruster.

I doubt we will see racks, the maximum weight anyone can thruster is not really close to a max clean.

And they will probably have very strict judging standard as the thruster ladder a few years ago at regionals.

True I can clean 25% more than I can thruster so won't be a problem.

Strict judging?? I was expecting a laid back event ;)
