Re: Why No Powerlifting at the Games?
How about this? Give the competitors 1 hour total to find 3 maxes:
Ground to waist (Deadlift)
Shoulders to overhead (Jerk)
Ground to overhead in one movement (Snatch)
Those 3 movements are very easy to judge since all you have to do is watch the bar location. Each lift could be counted as its own 100 point event. It might even work well to do this on the first day before the long event. You'd get some interesting strength and endurance numbers on day 1.
