Re: First 4 reps no rep from judge

First let me say how impressive it is to be in that group at all. I am in the 40-44 age group, and that level of competition amazes me.

That said, I have done a few team and individual competitions in my area for fun. I learned the hard way that every judge does things a little differently. I also learned the hard way that when the Emcee is loud and the music is going and the crowd is cheering, you sometimes have no idea if you are being no-repped. Most of my judges have been female, and I kindly ask them to shout at me if they see something they don't like. I also try and do a mock-rep before the clock starts to make sure we are on the same page.

I know you can't do that at the Games, and I think you got hosed a little bit. I agree rep-1 was questionable, but the rest looked no worse than some of the other lifts.
